Bandwagon Summer Series presents Soggy Po’ Boys at West River Park

BRATTLEBORO — The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series and Twilight Music present an evening of music by the Soggy Po Boys, on Sunday, October 8 at 3 p.m. at West River Park, 333 West River Rd. (Route 30).

The Soggy Po Boys have "spread the good news of New Orleans music" across the northeast and beyond since 2012, according to their website. Stu Dias (vocals, guitar), Eric Klaxton (clarinet, soprano sax), Josh Gagnon (trombone), Nick Mainella (tenor sax), Mike Effenberger (piano), Brian Waterhouse (drums), and Scott Kiefner (bass) look beyond NOLA jazz to include traditional Caribbean tunes, Meters funk, soul, and brass band/street beat music.

Next Stage Production Director and Twilight Music's Barry Stockwell notes in a news release that "the Soggy Po Boys lit up a full house at Next Stage on a cold, December Saturday night with the uplifting sounds and spirit of New Orleans. We're thrilled to bring the party outdoors as part of the Bandwagon Summer Series."
