Mumbo Gumbo returns to The Palms on Friday, April 27

Northern California favorites Mumbo Gumbo will bring their big, joyful sound to The Palms — 13 Main St., Winters — for a jubilant concert and dance party on Friday, April 27.

While much of their early music was based in the Louisiana sound, their music has broadened to include Latin, African, reggae grooves, country- and jazz-style ballads as well as good old-fashioned pop/rock. Over the septet’s 20 years together — on their eight albums and during countless gigs around their native California and beyond — Mumbo Gumbo has created something that is less a specific style than a particular feeling: The sound of sheer joy.

Mumbo Gumbo is fronted by first-rate singer/songwriters Chris Webster and Tracy Walton. Moving back and forth between Webster’s sly, sometimes melancholy explorations of romance and individuality (“Love Makes Me Stupid”, “Opera Girl”) and Walton’s ebullient, unabashed celebrations of family and commitment (“Original You”, “Stuck On You”) and Webster/Walton collaborations such as “The Wonder Of It All”, Gumbo weaves a rich tapestry of sound and sensibility that transcends genre.

The band is anchored and driven by one of the longest-lived, solid, and creative rhythm sections in Northern California: drummer Rick Lotter and bassist Lynn Michael Palmer. With Reggy Marks’ sax, Jon Wood’s guitar and Steve Stizzo’s keyboards fleshing out the band’s expansive sound, Mumbo Gumbo has built a reputation not just for danceability, but also for creative depth and listenability.

The dance floor will be open and seating will be limited.

Tickets are $20 and are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music’s Woodland branch, and at the door if not sold out. For more information, call (530) 795-1825 or visit palmsplayhouse.com or mumbogumbo.com.
