New Iberians and the GrooveTramps

Get ready for the The New Iberians Zydeco Blues at Mock Crest Tavern on Friday, December 13,  at 9:00 p.m. The fun and energetic group loves to get the crowd up and dancing.

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



Let’s give a warm welcome to The Groovetramps who will perform Saturday night, December 14th at 9:00 p.m. They are known for their swingin’ blues and rockin’ Americana music. The Groovetramps include Melanie Owen & Joseph Barton.

Joseph has performed for numerous groups including The Clam Daddies, The Train Wreckers and Tempa & the Tantrums. He has also toured for Grammy nominated Texas singer/songwriter Randy MacAllistar. Joseph also performs with The Joesph Barton Trio and plays bass and guitar with Armed & Dangerous Blues Review among others.

Along with The Groovetramps, Melanie plays for Cedar Avenue Blues Band and also performs with Thommy Knox and Eef. Occasionally she guest fronts with The Thommy Knoxvilles in Denver and Armed & Dangerous Blues Review in Seattle. Base members include:

  • Joseph Barton – guitar/bass/vocals/writing

Depending on the gig, The Groovetramps perform as a duo, trio or four piece group.

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