Iko Yaya

August 1, 2017
8:00 pm
Ashkenaz

Tickets are $12. Cajun/Zydeco dance lesson at 8 pm; show at 8:30 pm. Ashkenaz is always all ages! www.ashkenaz.com Iko Yaya dishes out steaming New Orleans-drenched "swamp and roll" for dancing. Iko Yaya is made up of longtime members of some of our favorite local bands, and it'll be a night of "bon temps roulez" big time! The musicians got together in 2013 to play the Louisiana-influenced music that moves them, and, as Jim Scott reports, "That's when the party started!" Tonight it's a full plate of their favorite New Orleans-based dance music - blues and boogie, Cajun/zydeco, R&B, Second Line, and even country - all delivered with a Mardi Gras vibe. Among the dance favorites are "Mardi Gras Mambo," "It's All Over Now," "Hey Pocky Way," and "Waltz Across Texas." Iko Yaya is singer-percussionist Cheryl McBride (born and raised in New Orleans, a member of SwingThing, and one of our regular dance teachers), singer-keyboardist Dave Rogers (SwingThing, Tamsen Donner Blues Band), guitarist Jim Scott (Mark St. Mary, CZ & the Bon Vivants, Jeffery Broussard), bassist-singer Ryan Houck, guitarist-percussionist Lance Houck, and drummer Sam Siggins (California Cajun Orchestra, Courtableu, Creole Belles). https://www.sonicbids.com/band/iko-yaya/
