Bayou Diesel at Summer Tracks June 21Published 3:28pm Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Fresh from three “packed-out” sets at the Merle Fest dance tent, Bayou Diesel takes the stage at Rogers Park at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 21. This lively five-piece band fills every venue they play with the sounds and the vitality of the Louisiana bayou. With Steve Burnside on the accordions (including several squeezebox), John Mulholland on rub board, Paul Leech on bass, Dave Zoll on guitar, and Ben Bjorlie on drums, Bayou Diesel produces high-energy Cajun, Zydeco and Creole melodies that get everyone of every age up and dancing. Bayou Diesel’s appearance at Summer Track’s is sponsored by Terry Ackerman in support of Big Brothers & Big Sisters.
As with all Summer Tracks concerts, the show is free, though a voluntary donation at the gate is encouraged. Audience donations along with the generous sponsorships of local businesses and individuals make these shows possible. JR’s wood-fired pizzas, water and soft drinks will be for sale.
Summer Tracks is produced by the Town of Tryon in affiliation with Peter Eisenbrown of Blockparty Productions. The popular series attracts people from all over the region. Last year, the concerts drew an estimated 2,000 people to downtown Tryon.
