Electrifying violinist/composer Tom Rigney joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco roots music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau, a band that will tear the roof off of anyplace that has one and raise the spirits of everyone around. Rigney’s band of all-stars simmers and cooks with musical intelligence. Specializing in Blazin’ Cajun and Zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, Boogie Woogie piano, and heart-breakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes, they generate enough heat and energy to ignite a dance floor and lift an audience to its feet!! Renowned guitarist Danny Caron, boogie queen Caroline Dahl, Steve Parks on bass and Brent Rapone on drums have carved evocative and powerfully uplifting music, led by that guy in the red boots. Rigney, now entering his second decade at the helm of Flambeau, has stepped into the spotlight with a vengeance. Flambeau showcases his passionate, virtuoso fiddling, his commanding stage presence, his range, depth, and originality as a composer. His bandmates are veterans of the great bands of Charles Brown, Queen Ida, Clifton Chenier, and others, and together they generate enough heat and energy to ignite a dance floor or lift an audience to its feet.
