Tom Rigney

Today’s Local Music: Tom Rigney

Oct 20, 2015


The band you’re hearing now is Tom Rigney & Flambeau. That’s Tom on the fiddle. This band plays Cajun and zydeco, New Orleans grooves, and blues – along with waltzes and ballads. Sounds like something for everyone!

The peppy tune you are hearing now is by long-time roots music fiddler Tom Rigney. Rigney and his band, Flambeau, were voted Best Cajun/Zydeco Band a few years back by the West Coast Hall of Fame. 

 Tom Rigney and company will be performing tomorrow evening, October 8th at Ashkenaz in Berkeley, starting at 8:30pm. And if you’re interested, there’s a dance lesson starting at 8:00pm.
