Crawdaddies to Rock BlackRock Free Summer Concert Series

July 16, 2015

 

The BlackRock Center for Arts will continue its Free Summer Concert Series on Saturday with three free performances this weekend. The lineup features two circus performances and a rocking mix of Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, Ska, Rock and Reggae.

   The fun will start Friday night as BlackRock presents the Swedish circus company Magmanus at 5:00 pm on the lawn out on Century Boulevard. In this show, created and performed Magmanus, you will meet an angry, small but passionate acrobat and a stupid, gigantic yet so lovable juggler. Together they perform in a circus show with jaw-dropping skills and stomach turning comedy that includes Bollywood juggling, teeterboard dancing and a handstand, and a high-flying acrobatic grand finale.

   On Saturday, Magmanus is back on the lawn again at 3:30 pm for a free Tumbling Workshop before coming back again at 6:00 pm to perform their entire acrobatic show.

   Following Magmanus, are The Crawdaddies at 7:00 pm on the lawn. Founded in 1995 on the premise of “why not, it might just work,” The Crawdaddies infuse Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, Ska, Roots Rock and Reggae into an incomparable, groove-laden sound that is unquestionably its own. Consummate headliners, the eclectic, good-time spirit of their set has allowed The Crawdaddies to share the stage with a wide range of artists including: Etta James, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Trombone Shorty, Dr. John, Charlie Daniels, Last Train Home, Buddy Guy, Funky Meters, The Old 97s, The Radiators, Jimmy Cliff, Carbon Leaf, CJ Chenier, Atlanta Rhythm Section, John Eddie, Joan Jett, The Spinners, Kid Creole, Edgar Winter, The Iguanas, Terrance Simien, G. E. Smith, Marshall Crenshaw, The Young Dubliners, Buckwheat Zydeco, and Reel Big Fish. The Crawdaddies were also invited to perform on the 2009 Mardi Gras Mambo Tour with Dr. John and the Neville Brothers.

 

   The Crawdaddies are Kraig Greff, accordion, piano; Chris Huntington, vocals, guitar; Javier Rivera, vocals, washboard, acoustic guitar; Rod Gross, drums, and Dan Hones, bass, vocals. Each road-seasoned member hosts an impressive and diverse musical performance resume, most notably, 2008 Emmy Award recipient Greff, who toured with Della Reese, Barry White, Joe Williams and Diana Ross.

   All Summer Concerts will be performed on the BlackRock front lawn, weather permitting. In the case of inclement weather, the concert will move inside to the BlackRock Mainstage
