Nathan & the Cha Chas

Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas perform to an appreciative crowd on Library Green, July 16.

The exuberant sounds of Zydeco resounded in downtown New Rochelle on Thursday evening, July 16, when the BID Music on the Green concert series kicked-off with a performance by the internationally renowned group of Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas. Dance lessons for the traditional Creole music were offered before the show, preparing many of the 500-plus audience members for the non-stop dancing inspired by the Louisiana-based group.

The free concert series, sponsored by Avalon on the Sound, continues on July 23 with the 16-piece steel orchestra, The Pantonics, and concludes on July 30th with Samba and Brazilian jazz by the Nanny Assis group. Both concerts begin at 6:30 pm and will be held in the library’s Ossie Davis Theater in the event of rain. Complimentary tickets will be available in the library’s lobby on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 5:00 pm.
