The literal French translation of lagniappe is, as drummer/percussionist Yvan Verbesselt notes, "something extra, something special." That's precisely what Cincinnati's Cajun-and-more sextet Lagniappe delivers on a regular basis. "I don't think there's any band that plays all of what we play," says newest member Jessie Berne, who provides bass, fiddle and clarinet to Lagniappe. "Everybody here is a multi-instrumentalist, so they play lots of different things, but the musical choices are so eclectic. Even in New Orleans, they don't necessarily play polkas and the Grateful Dead."
If weather permits, we will be OUTSIDE on Journal Square! (Inside, if it rains).
