The Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park will welcome the cajun/zydeco sounds of the “Dixie Power Trio” to their Groovin’ in the Park casual outdoor music series on Saturday, June 23, from 5-8 p.m. Gates will open at 4 p.m.

The maritime park is located in Deltaville on 287 Jackson Creek Road, and by water on Mill Creek off Jackson Creek.

This Groovin’ concert will be held in the museum’s spacious Waterfront Park overlooking pristine Mill Creek. Come by land or water. Seating and music will spread out to the north toward the Tea House food court. This is a “bring your own lawn chair, cooler, and picnic” event. Some metal folding chairs are close by if you can’t bring yours.

The Dixie Power Trio is a four-piece group dedicated to the music and sounds of Louisiana. Formed in 1992, the band (led by tuba/bassist Andy Kochenour and cornet/accordionist Zack Smith) has spent the last decade performing for audiences in clubs, concerts, and schools. The group is based in Fredericksburg, and has toured extensively throughout the United States in support of their eight independently produced recordings. “Big Parade” is the band’s most recent CD release. Check out all about the Dixie Power Trio and their music at http://www.dixiepowertrio.com.

In a typical set the band will play a gumbo of different styles including zydeco, Cajun, New Orleans jazz, funk, street parade, and rock. The songs are a mix of Louisiana-flavored originals and covers—all with a unique, happy-go-lucky attitude. The band’s music has been featured on national Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and on several WB television shows. Over the past few years the band has shared the concert stage with many Louisiana music luminaries including Wynton Marsalis, Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Terrance Simien, Chubby Carrier, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Olympia Brass Band, and Beausoleil.

For those who don’t have time to cook, Groovin’ now offers hot dogs, barbecue, cheeseburgers, barbecue hamburgers, sodas, bottled water at David’s Snak-shak and the new Tea House. Always hot and tasty. Cold beverages now served at the Tea House kitchen.

We welcome back Marty’s Swine Skins to our food and drink offerings. Try Marty’s new cheese flavor, and sweet skins.

Groovin’ will happen, rain or shine. We will be on the stage in our spacious events pavilion in case of inclement weather.

Tickets for Groovin’ are $10 in advance or $15 at the gate. Children under 12 are admitted free. Advance tickets are available through the museum office, website or at Nauti Nell’s in Deltaville. Get yours early!
