The Riverbank Cafe was packed with diners & decked out in Christmas lights & flowers. Gorgeous. Raif & Sadie made the extra long journey north to play with Chico as Lagniappe lite aka "Trio version."
They started out by strolling the crowd and it was pretty smooth sailing from there.
For those that don't know, Accordions are VERY heavy instruments and take a lot of energy. Look at this close up of Sadie working it!
A Lagniappe trio returns next month to Riverbank Cafe, 1/20/12 Friday night 7pm.

It was a blast from the past night kind of sorta. Lagniappe hadn't played here in a few years and their old accordion player, Chuck Wiggins filled in. He played with Lagniappe until 1998. I remember first hearing the band at Borders in the 90s, when I was just a little girl (clears throat!)
I was playing with the settings to avoid flash so that's why some pics are grainy. It was great to see the guys even though Chico was late to the first set due to traffic issues. Yvan & Chuck sounded like 2.5 men with Chuck's electronic accordion sounding like two instruments at once. But it turned out fine.
A Trio version of Lagniappe returns next month on November 18th. Should be Yvan, Chico and John on piano/brass instruments. See ya then. ~ Soph

It was a hot night at Arnold's, but not too steamy for some folks to party. One of my tweeps from Twitter shared these pictures. Tami's friend, Patty, had a birthday & they had a blast at Arnold's with Lagniappe's music in the background last night.
Remember, if you watch Harry's Law, Arnold's is going to be used as one of the local hangouts in the show. Starts in a few weeks! ~~Sophia
P.S. Also, Lagniappe has a CD for sale, "irrational exuberance." Ask a band member.
