2016 Events Schedule
|4:00 pm||Mixed Music|
|5:00 pm||Lexi Weege
The female performing artist has long been objectified, controlled, censored, restrained. This is what Lexi Weege refuses to be. Her music is passionate, alive, awakened; the narrative of a woman unashamed of her desires and unafraid to seize control. Weege conjures up decadent scenes of the roaring twenties with her stellar voice and jazz-influenced compositions. Constantly touring, performing, and creating, Lexi Weege has released a full-length album [Virgin, 2013] and more recently, "Sweet Moon", a '7 record, both recorded live to tape. Weege's insistence on analogue recording is evidence of her passion for authenticity in her music. "With the confidence to throw her all into the circus ring of theatricality, Lexi Weege stamps the mark of a true performer. (Bluesbunny.com)"
|6:00 pm||Zydeco Connection
