The Palms Playhouse in Winters will host a New Year’s Eve dance party — complete with a champagne toast at midnight and all the trimmings — featuring the Cajun-flavored and compellingly danceable music of Tom Rigney and Flambeau.

Rigney, the fiery, electrifying violinist/composer, joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco music scene to form Tom Rigney & Flambeau. The band specializes in blazing Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans groves, and beautiful ballads and waltzes.

Rigney recently was honored as emperor of this year’s Sacramento Jazz Festival and Jubilee.

Rigney composes most of the songs, although the shows are spiced with classics from the Cajun/zydeco/New Orleans songbook. His charismatic stage presence, humor and high-energy showmanship pull the audience into his performances and make them feel that they are a part of the music and the show, according to a news release from The Palms.

Voted Best Cajun/Zydeco Band by the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame, Tom Rigney and Flambeau feature Rigney on violin, Danny Caron on electric guitar, Caroline Dahl on piano and accordion, Steve Parks on bass and Iian Hoffman on drums. The dance floor will be open.

The New Year’s Eve celebration Saturday begins at 9:30 p.m. and continues into the early hours of the new year at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in downtown Winters.

Tickets are $35, available at Armadillo Music, 205 F St. in Davis; Watermelon Music, 527 Main St. in Winters; and Pacific Ace Hardware, 35 Main St. in Winters. Tickets also will be available at the door if not sold out.
