The Red Beans & Rice recipe: Take one part Pittsburgh’s finest New Orleans-style piano player (Tom Roberts) and two parts illustrators/obscure garage band afficionados (Wayno and Dave Klug), add libations to suit. Quick, tasty, stylish and fun!
This is the third in our series of “Pay It Forward” events featuring all local music. This show is being funded by the music lovers attending the PIF show on July 9 featuring TS Ponoc. Your donation will be used to help fund the fourth show in the series with Molly Alphabet, which will happen on Setember 11. Your donation entitles you to admission to the Red Beans & Rice show AND the final show of the series with Mark Dignam and The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers on October 15.
We are limiting attendance to 50 adults. This band has a loyal following, so don’t wait to reserve your spot. Click the “Buy Tickets” link above to register and donate. No registrations will be available at the party, you must register in advance.
This event will be potluck-to-share and BYOB. Ages 21+ please, but kids are welcome to attend with their parents. No donations requested for kids. Bring some extra $$ to buy merch from the band! We have 60 folding chairs but feel free to bring your own chairs or blankets. The show goes on rain or shine unless it is an unending monsoon.
Public Service Announcement: Collecting donations in advance and limiting attendance is intended to help ensure that the audience is truly interested in the performers and in respectfully experiencing the music. There is nothing wrong with hooting and hollering and clapping and singing and dancing when the music moves you, but this series of shows won’t be background music to talk over, promise.
