JamBits Interviews - Janiva Magness & Dave Darling - Part 1

    Tom Rigney & Flambeau Tom Rigney, the fiery, electrifying violinist/composer, joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco music scene to form Tom Rigney & Flambeau. This great band specializes in blazing Cajun and zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans groves, and beautiful ballads and waltzes. Most of the songs are composed by Rigney, but they also mix in a few classics from the Cajun/zydeco/New Orleans songbook. Rigney's charismatic stage presence, humor, and high-energy showmanship pull the audience into his performances and make them feel that they are a part of the music and the show. Tom Rigney and Flambeau were voted Best Cajun/Zydeco Band of 2004 by the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame. The members of Rigney's band are Rigney on violin, Danny Caron on electric guitar, Caroline Dahl on piano, Steve Parks on bass and Brent Rampone on drums. Of course, the dance floor will be open. "Never less than spellbinding. The eclectic and sizzling music runs the gamut fromgritty zydeco and funky blues to New Orleans jazz and lyrical waltzes. It's hard to know whether to be more impressed by Rigney's playing, his compositions, or the back-up support he gets." Paul D. Comeau, Dirty Linen Magazine
