Rock n’ soul will rule the night on Saturday, February 17 as Christine Ohlman, the flashy, gritty platinum-blonde “Beehive Queen,” who is the longtime vocalist with NBC’s Saturday Night Live Band, brings Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez to The Outpost in The Burbs in Montclair, for “KEEP MARDI GRAS ALIVE: LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL” a show that will spotlight stories from her New Orleans connections as well as songs from her six CDs, including The Deep End and 2018’s upcoming The Grown-Up Thing. Montclair’s own Big Mamou will be special guests. This concert will take place at the First Congregational Church, 40 South Fullerton Avenue at 8 p.m.
“I am delighted to make my first appearance at The Outpost in The Burbs essentially a tribute to one of my musical second homes,” says Ohlman. “Although we don’t play classic New Orleans music, we are steeped in that vibe, and Big Mamou will kick off the evening in truly classic style. I’ll tell some wonderful Crescent City stories, too. Let’s keep the Mardi Gras spirit going!”
Montclair’s own Big Mamou plays a rocking mix of original and traditional zydeco, Cajun, country and R&B music. Fronted by accordionist/singer, John Sherman and singer Julianne Fenhagen, Big Mamou also includes guitarist/pedal steel player, Michael Levine, upright bassist, Jim Fenhagen, drummer Billy Loos, and trombonist, Fred Parcells.
