2ND STREET, DOWNTOWN MARIETTA

CAJUN DANCE LESSONS 430PM
SHOWTIME 5PM
EARLY SUNDAY SHOW

 We are proud to announce "Swamp Stomp" is back. It's been several years since we had Swamp Music brought in from Southwestern Louisiana. The Galley/Adelphia Music Hall, 203 Second Street, Marietta, has agreed to open up just for us on Sunday, November 13 with Jeffrey Broussard & The Zydeco Cowboys performing. The band is one of the top Zydeco acts touring today.  We booked  them on a routing date on a Sunday for a reasonable price.
 
The Galley has agreed to a limited menu which will include some Cajun specials. Doors open at 4 PM, dance  instruction starts at 4:30 PM and showtime is 5 PM. Jeffery and his band will perform two 75 minute sets. We need your support for this show so we can continue to bring you these most desirable art forms. If you have never been to the Galley/Adelphia Music Hall, you will be impressed with the venue. It was built as a music venue and not an afterthought.

Cover charge is $15 per person or $25 per couple. Advance tickets may be purchased at The Galley, or by calling 740-374-8278, or by going online to "thegalleymarietta.com."  Tickets will also be offered at the door.  For more information call Cobbler John afternoons and evenings at 740-376-0222.

About The Blues, Jazz & Folk Music Society
www.bjfm.org           P.O. Box 2122, Marietta, Ohio  45750
 
The Blues, Jazz & Folk Music Society is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3  all-volunteer "force" of music enthusiasts on a mission to enhance the appreciation of American Roots Music in the Mid-Ohio Valley and we do it by presenting concerts, workshops, conferences, and a forum for education and development in the schools. 

The BJFM Society celebrates and perpetuates blues and roots music as a traditional, evolutionary, and uniquely American art form. During the grant period, we will continue to present live music in genres not normally available in a small town like ours, to educate and expose our audiences to music new and unfamiliar to many of them.  Our goal is to keep blues, jazz and roots music alive in our area.

With the help of volunteers from our membership, and an
8-member board of directors, the BJFM Society will continue to produce and present our "core events" plus other shows throughout the year as the opportunity presents itself.  The BJFM Society has also undertaken the expense of production and presentation of the nationally recognized multicultural "Blues in the Schools" program  here in our local schools
