Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys
Named “Best Cajun Band” at the 2019 Offbeat Magazine Best of the Beat Awards, Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys are back once again by popular demand! It always seems that the four times Grammy-nominated band couldn’t possibly get any better, and yet they keep bringing it stronger and stronger. As one of THE hottest and most accomplished Cajun bands around, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys are perennial favorites at Rhythm & Roots! Their stunningly clean and cohesive performance of Cajun French music, incredible vocal harmonies, and amazing musicianship has taken the traditional sound of Southwest Louisiana and infused it with New Cajun dynamism that is always fresh, always enticing, and eminently danceable. The band’s latest release, 30 Years Live, is due out in late April 2019.
