The Falcon in Marlboro has developed an undeniable specialization and authority in Cajun and zydeco styles to augment its undisputed local dominance as a jazz, blues, singer/songwriter and world-music venue. ’Tis the season now, too, and the Falcon welcomes back Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys for two shows on Monday and Tuesday, February 1 and 2. Once called the Cajun Beatles for the effortless and playful way in which they balance tradition and innovation, Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys have been at it for 20 years of road-dog living.
Both shows begin at 7 p.m. Per usual at the Falcon, there is no cover charge, but generous donation is strongly encouraged and 100 percent of donations go directly to the performers. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com.
