OLD FORGE — View arts center at 3273 Route 28 is asking local residents to transport themselves to Cajun Country with View’s Virtual Concert Series as it continues with Mojo & The Bayou Gypsies Louisiana Fire on Thursday, Feb. 11 — just in time for Mardi Gras.
From the “Looziana Bayous,” where the alligators got soul and the good times roll, comes Mojo & The Bayou Gypsies, with a filmed two-hour concert. The charismatic six-piece troupe of near-mad musical provocateurs, is known for performing a crescendo of Cajun accordion, fiddle, rubboards, electrifying drums and more.
Mister Mojo’s original toe-tapping, finger snapping Louisiana music, certified by the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, tells stories — all about friends, family, events in their lives, and the good things in life that money just can’t buy.
The music reflects the Louisiana Zydeco tradition as well as Cajun and New Orleans two steps, Rock & Roll, and blues rhythms all combined into a gleeful gumbo called “red hot mojo music.”
The “show” starts Thursday, Feb. 11, and will be available for viewing for three weeks. The event is free with an opportunity to donate to performing arts at View.
The event is made possible by BiCoastal Productions. For more information, visit View online at www.viewarts.org.
