The New Iberians and Johnnie Ward Sharkskin Revue

Get ready to have a fantastic evening of music with The New Iberians Zydeco Blues at Mock Crest Tavern on Friday, September 20th,  at 9:00 p.m. The fun and energetic group loves to get the crowd up and swinging.

The band chose their name from New Iberia, Louisiana, well-known  for its red pepper hot sauce.  Their music roots itself in Louisiana Zydeco, Northwest Rock, and Chicago Blues.

In 2002 they released their first CD, with Robert Lee on fiddle. After Robert left the band,  harmonica man, Claes Almroth, added his vast experience of Blues and R&B to the group. The band then became the New Iberians Zydeco Blues Band.  In 2008 and  2011, the band released additional CD’s, and they’re currently working on their fourth.

The New Iberians Blues & Zydeco Band includes many original tunes, but they don’t leave out the traditional Zydeco, Blues and New Orleans Rock’n’Roll. You will enjoy their wide variety of music.

Check them out for yourself at their website.

Come on over and join us at the tavern while we  hang out with Johnnie Ward’s Sharkskin Revue. The performance starts at 9 p.m. Saturday, September 21st.

Johnnie’s Sharkskin Revue plays the blues, swing, jazz, and also features Portland blues  legend Johnnie Ward and chanteuse Lauren Sheehan.

Johnnie, who is a Muddy Award winner, leads the band on tenor saxophone, harmonica, saxcello, and vocals. They feature original music as well as a wide variety of material from Ella Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, and Thelonious Monk. Catch their performance on youtube.

Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
