Join the New Iberians and Ted Ness and the Rusty Nails This Weekend

The New Iberians Zydeco Blues return to Mock Crest Tavern on Friday, July 18th,  at 9:00 p.m. You are sure to enjoy this fun and energetic group.

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. They offer a great variety of music. Check them out for yourself at their website.

Ted Ness and the Rusty Nails perform Saturday, July 19th, at 9:00 p.m. If you like bluegrass, this is the Ted_NessRustyNailsgroup for you.

Located in Montana they emerged from the Yellowstone Valley in 2011. Ted Ness and the Rusty Nails have been “writin’ and pickin'” Montana-grass tunes and performing all over the Pacific Northwest. They consist of 4 folks, 40 fingers, and 22 strings, and have ” been firein’ up whiskey-soaked hootenannies and shindiggers since the day they descended upon Missoula.”

Here’s what the press says about them:

“In the short span of a year, Ted Ness and the Rusty Nails have transcended the world of street-side performances and become a band that provides light-hearted fun to full audiences with upbeat, authentic bluegrass.”  —  Hannah Jacobsen, Noise and Color.

Visit them at Reverbnation for tunes and additional information.

Roy Smallwood returns this Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m with Quizzy Trivia and Free Hold ’em Poker on Monday at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s a bit of trivia for you:

  • The most popular gift in Eastern Europe is a bottle of vodka.
  • The Asian cordial “kumiss” is made of fermented cow’s milk.
  • In Medieval England, beverage alcohol was often served with breakfast.
  • British wine isn’t the same as English wine. British wine is made from imported grapes; English wine is not.
  • Drinking chocolate mixed with beverage alcohol was fashionable at European social events in the 17th century.

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