Share this page:
In a debut as a band and at Ashkenaz, the Mighty Mangroves represent a new generation of musicians in the lineage of Creole, Zydeco and Cajun musicians hailing from the Bay Area. The band features an eclectic mix of electrified traditional Creole and Cajun standards, soul infused Zydeco classics, and golden era R&B and Blues. Each member has a long relationship and love for Ashkenaz and brings the influence of world and folk genres into the genre as well as their individual tastes and playing. It is appropriate they make their debut at Ashkenaz, as they are distinctly a product of the historic venue. Also appropriately, they will bill joined by many local guests from the scene including Andrew Carriere, Steve Tabak and Andre Nigoghossian.
