The Palms is hosting 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.

Festivities begin at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 31, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters.
Rigney, the fiery, electrifying violinist/composer, joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau. The band specializes in blazing Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans groves, and beautiful ballads and waltzes.

Rigney composes most of the songs, although the shows are spiced with classics from the Cajun/zydeco/New Orleans songbook. Rigney’s 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.

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

Tickets for this special New Year’s Eve celebration are $35 and are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com or rigomania.com.
