Madame LaRoux and the Gand Band Mardi Gras Party


February 15, 2023    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Masks, beads, feathers and boas encouraged!
Michele Lundeen tore it up on her first visit to the Cascade Lounge with the Gand Band. Now she’s back to transport us to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras as Madame LeRoux!

Ready to raise roofs and tear down walls with infectious New Orlean’s rhythm & blues, zydeco, southern boogie, rollicking-roadhouse blues, swamp-rock …

Passionate, playful vocals and washboard and energized musicianship fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B and more …
Bring your dancin’ shoes and get your mojo workin’!
Your party has indeed arrived!
Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!
Let the Good Times Roll!

Winner of the CV Independent’s Best Local Band for THREE years running, this dynamic husband and wife team bring their Chicago sound to the desert.
Veteran bluesman Gary Gand handles the six strings, driving the band, channeling a bit of Freddie King, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck rolled into one. Keyboardist Joan Gand grooves on classic Hammond B-3 style organ and blues piano with inspiration from Booker T, Ray Charles, and Otis Spann, all while her left hand is laying down the bass.

Throughout this series of concerts, special guests will join the Gand Band including top notch performers from both Chicago and San Diego.
