Baltimore Magazine has called Mambo Combo the "Best Party Band," adding, "... crowds moving to the seductive rhythms of Island sound are a pretty good tip-off that the group is nearby." In past years, Mambo Combo won the “WAMMY” from the Washington Area Music Association as “Best Latin Band.”

2:00 -3:30 • Squeeze Bayou

Squeeze Bayou plays Cajun dance music from Southwestern Louisiana with a dash of zydeco thrown in. The band plays lively two steps and soulful waltzes, as well as music that blends many styles including country music, blues and Creole. Their material is rooted in traditional Louisiana sources and most of the vocals are sung in Cajun French.

The band : Karen Collins - fiddle, vocals, rubboard | Kevin Bell - accordion | Fred Feinstein - guitar | Kevin Enoch - bass | David Lopez - drums

Squeeze Bayou has been performing Cajun music at dances, festivals, wedding receptions, parties and other events in the Washington D.C. area for over 20 years. In 1998 the band received the "Prix Dehors de Nous", known as the "Cajun Grammy" for best recording of a Cajun band outside of Louisiana for their CD "Steppin' Fast". www.squeezebayou.com

3:30 - 5:00 • Brad Kolodner, Luke Chohany and Alex Lacquement Band

From groovy Old Time melodies and Bluegrass ballads to reimagined country songs and driving stringband numbers, Brad, Luke & Alex dazzle with their top-notch instrumental chops and three part harmony singing. The trio shares a deep musical bond forged over years living together as roommates in Brad's Hampden row house. Brad Kolodner is one of the country's foremost clawhammer banjoists and a founding member of the powerhouse Irish, Old Time and Bluegrass quartet Charm City Junction and the hypnotizing collaboration with his father The Ken & Brad Quartet. Luke Chohany is perhaps the fastest rising acoustic guitar star in Baltimore and is well versed in bluegrass, jazz, and country. Alex Lacquement is one of the most in-demand upright bassists in the region as a performer with the Bumper Jacksons, Charm City Junction, Letitia Van Sant, and The Ken & Brad Quartet. Together, they represent the next generation of acoustic roots musicians carrying the torch for the music in the Baltimore area. www.bradkolodner.com | www.alexlaquement.com
