Creole Stomp brings French music tradition to SIC

"Dennis Stroughmatt and Creole Stomp brings audiences the sounds many associate with Mardi Gras and New Orleans Jazz Fest, a partying dance band blending the accordion and fiddle with elements of jazz and the blues.

French speaking crowds may take something deeper from the band's concerts.

The crowd at Southeastern Illinois College will decide for themselves what to make of the band 7 p.m. Saturday on the stage of the George T. Dennis Visual and Performing Arts Center. Legence Bank is underwriting the concert that is part of the college's Cultural Arts Series."
