Chubby Carrier is coming to town!

Chubby CarrierAfter the Waterfront Blues Festival Grammy Winner, Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, are sticking around the West Coast. As Chubby says, "Prepare to be Funkified, Zydecofied, and the pleasant victim of a Chubby Party. Experience what we call a Swamp-Funky Zydeco Good Time, 'cause there ain't no party like a Chubby Party."


The Lehrer Pub
8775 SW Canyon Lane Portland, Oregon
Details TBA

Video: Watch Chubby and the Bayou Swamp Band at Gator by the Bay on Mother's Day, 2012, when he invited all the moms in the crowd to come on stage and "shake it". And so they did.
