July 26 presents Filé Gumbo!

Long time NW band Filé Gumbo has been at it for 30 years!

While they used the word ‘Zydeco’ in their name to let folks who’d see the listing in the newspaper know that they were going to hear Louisiana sounds on accordion and scrubboard, the band never predominantly played that specific groove, but rather drew a lot of material from New Orleans R&B and Rock ‘n Roll, also playing Cajun music, Swamp Pop, Swamp Blues and Dixieland Jazz as well as a couple Zydeco standards and songs that fit that groove.

Some highlights have included opening shows, performing at festivals over the years plus countless community concerts, the Folklife Festival, weddings, corporate events and other private functions.
