About this event

"Food is one part of the experience. And it has to be somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the dining experience. But the rest counts as well: The mood, the atmosphere, the music, the feeling, the design, the harmony between what you have on the plate and what surrounds the plate. - Author: Alain Ducasse"

Join us for a special night with K.C. JONES on Saturday August 13th. I still remember to this day the first time I saw K.C. Jones perform. Caroline Helm Huval hosted and MC'ed The "Nue Moon Review," a musical series at the Blue Moon Saloon that featured a rotating all star house band, along with singer songwriters, that would perform their songs with the band. In 2008, Caroline introduced Kelli Jones as an up and coming musician and was in awe of how such a young performer wrote with such an old soul. The result of her tenure is her masterfully crafted debut album "Queen of the In Between" released in late 2021.

Saturday K.C. Jones will play a few songs, talk about her songs, share her relationships with them and share stories of her favorite childhood food memories which Chefs C.J Pothier and Greg Walls will recreate (price includes food).

It's a night not to be missed!

Doors open @ 6:00 PM. Show starts @ 6:45 PM

BIO KC JONES

Kelli Jones moves so effortlessly between genres, traditions, and musical concepts that it’s clear she was born with an insatiable artistic curiosity. As a teenager, she emerged from a deeply musical Appalachian family to become an amazingly apt singer, guitarist, and dancer in old-time music. Moving to Southwest Louisiana, she quickly learned Cajun French and began writing preternaturally gifted original songs in dual languages with progressive Cajun bands like GRAMMY-nominated Feufollet, T’Monde, The Daiquiri Queens, and as a duo with Joel Savoy. Both of these jumping off points, what she casually refers to as “obsessions,” have fueled the music on her debut solo record, Queen of the In Between, recently released on June 18, 2021, but she also seamlessly references so much more, everything from classic country to psychedelic rock to contemporary indie roots singer-songwriters. Jones is a fearless bandleader, weaving together an opus that sounds remarkably cohesive. She’s roaming the halls of 20th century Americana synthesizing a century’s worth of music with ease. It’s not simply a meld of seemingly disparate influences; every one of her projects dazzle in their ability to speak to the universality of human emotion.
