Perkins' DeCafe Concert ft. "April Mae and the June Bugs"
Friday, February 10, 2023
The Moorestown DeCafe is a warm coffeehouse environment where folks gather to enjoy live folk music, jazz, the blues, or world music once per month. Performers range from nationally known singer-songwriters to talented local musicians on the verge of breaking out.
Tickets go quickly and space is limited in order to provide an intimate setting for audience and performers alike. In keeping with its coffeehouse inspiration, the cost of admission includes coffee, tea, and light fare.
April Mae’s June Bug Band serves up a rich New Orleans Musical Gumbo! Starting with a roux of Mardi Gras celebratory brass band music, hot swing for heat, peppered with June Bugs' roots music. Robustly spiced with the jubilant brass flavors of slide trombone, saxophone, and clarinet; Catfish Dave on banjo and cigar box guitar, fueled by the pumping rhythm section of sousaphone (tuba), drums, and frottoir (washboard). Sweetened with honey vocals of April Mae - You can't help but answer the call of the second line!
