3. 2018 TRUCKEE CRAW THAW MUSIC FESTIVAL APRIL 27-28
A FREE New Orleans inspired spring event, the TRUCKEE CRAW THAW Music Festival will bring a diverse lineup of American roots-inspired musicians, cajun cuisine and family fun to historic downtown Truckee, California April 27 & 28, 2018
Produced by Crux Events in partnership with the Truckee Tourism Business Improvement District (TTBID) and Moody’s Bistro Bar & Beats, this new inaugural event benefits Moody’s Jazz Camp, a non-profit supporting local youth and music education through jazz.
Festivities kick off the evening of Friday, April 27 with two live bands set up on Bridge Street outside Moody’s Bistro, Bar & Beats in downtown Truckee. A performance by “The Easy Leaves,” a Sonoma County-based six piece honky tonk country band, will be followed by “Jazz Mafia Accomplices,” a six piece jazz ensemble from San Francisco that has been described as “throwing down a wildly eclectic mix of mind bending freestyle hip-hop, ballsy electro-swing, and fiery fiddle.” The jubilation will be complimented by a tasty selection of Cajun-style street food from the recipes of renowned Moody’s Chef William Burns.
On Saturday, April 28, food and games kick off at noon with DJ Headphones and Horses spinning on the decks. Festival goers will enjoy a feast of Creole and cajun-style street fare, barrel-aged Redemption Whiskey cocktails and craft beer. Designed to be a fun event for the whole family, activities will include crawfish races and other games. Daytime performances will include the award-winning Truckee High School Jazz Band and local kids’ dance troupes.
As the day turns to dusk, local legend Tim Manning will share untold stories and behind the scenes footage showcasing his career as one of the most respected cinematographers in snowboarding. From the “early days” of his snow film archives all the way through his recent award winning work in 2018, Manning will discuss the evolution of film making in the sport that has given his fans the unforgettable feeling that would make anyone want to snowboard and travel around the world forever.
The festival will continue into Saturday evening with more live music; Nashville-based “Miss Tess & The Talkbacks” are known to regularly steal the show with an eclectic sound infused with classic country, honky-tonk, southern rhythm and blues. “Otis McDonald,” from the mind and ears of producer and multi-instrumentalist, Joe Bagale, will headline, creating a sound that is fresh and rooted in nostalgia.
