From the Great Clifton Chenier, “If you dance, your aches and pains will disappear.” The wooden dance floor will be on the turf for this event, and a pre-concert 2 step dance class will get you set!

For the last year Andre Thierry has worked with Felecia Gaston's group Performing Stars of Marin. The young boys have learned Zydeco music now play the rubboard, have advanced to drums and have created their own performing group. “Zydeco Boys” will offer an opening number.

Andre has also spent time with Marin Schools of the Arts, working with Rock Band Director Rhian Robinson and her students. They were taught to play and perform Zydeco songs and will also help get this night of fabulous music started.

The beautiful and safe Swig Field is surrounded by Marin hills and begs for picnicking, but will offer the choice of purchasing delicious as well as affordable meals on-site from San Rafael’s Roadside BBQ pop-up Restaurant. No alcohol is allowed to be brought in, but is available for purchase.

Performing Stars of Marin will host the Kid Zone, offering up a Zydeco music art project along side the playground for youngsters. A Georgi & Willow pop-up shop will offer festival shopping and add to the full Marin community experience.

Special guests will include families from Marin City, Brandeis Hillel Day School and Marin School of the Arts.
