cz boothPlease volunteer to help staff the Cascade Zydeco booth at the 2015 Blues Festival July 2-5th. Sign up with Roland or Janine at any CZ event or drop them an email. It's fun, it's easy, and we need you! Out-of-town visitors, we need you, too!


blues logoGet your Zydeco Buddy Pass (it's good for the whole festival, not just Zydeco!) for the Waterfront Blues Festival at the early bird price of $70. Price will go up to $85 some time in May (they're being a little cagey about the deadline). Passes are now available through Ticket Tomato at tickettomato.com. The Zydeco Buddy Pass entitles you to: 1. early entry to the festival each day, 30 minutes before the crowds get in, 2. unlimited exit & re-entry any time, even if the gates are closed due to overcrowding, and 3. free entry for after hours music in the Marriot Hotel Ballroom (Chubby will be playing!). Other passes are available at the Blues Fest site, but the Zydeco Buddy Pass is only available through this link.
