Live entertainment by local bands:
Too Loose Cajun Band – Cajun/Zydeco
The ever-popular Too Loose Cajun/Zydeco Band rocks the house in the Portland area with their infectious brand of cajun and zydeco dance music from Southwestern Louisiana. Do the two-step to the sound of two fiddles, accordion, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, the traditional Louisiana rub-board, and a kickin' rhythm section. With their vocal harmonies tart and sweet, male and female, they are perennial favorites on the zydeco stage at the Waterfront Blues Festival, as well as at area parties, weddings and festivals.
