Iko YaYa plus Dance Lesson with Ted Sherrod, Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center, Tuesday, 03. December 2019

Doors at 7:30 pm / Dance Lesson with Ted Sherrod at 8:00 pm / Show at 8:30 pm
Iko Yaya dishes out steaming New Orleans-drenched “swamp and roll” for dancing. The band is made up of longtime members of some of our favorite local groups, 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), guitarist Jim Scott (Mark St. Mary, CZ & the Bon Vivants, Jeffery Broussard), bassist-singer Ryan Houck, guitarist-percussionist Lance Houck, saxophonist Otoe Mori, trumpeter Marty Arvan, and drummer Sam Siggins (California Cajun Orchestra, Courtableu, Creole Belles).
