Roll back the rug
From Sonora to Lake Tahoe to Santa Cruz to Reno, Nev., Mumbo Gumbo has maintained a regular show regimen that keeps the surrounding areas quite content. Although the band’s sound is an amalgam of styles including world, blues, balladry, country and even rockabilly, these musicians know how to make it all work simultaneously in their two-hour-plus sets. The core members of the group—Chris Webster and Tracy Walton, the band’s mainstay singer-songwriters—are just two of the many reasons you should experience the band in a live setting. Drummer Rick Lotter, bassist Mike Palmer, saxophonist Reggy Marks, accordionist and pianist Steve Stizzo and guitar hero Jon Wood offer you five more. Still debating? Check out some awesome song samples at www.mumbogumbo.com. On Saturday at 8 p.m., the band will play songs from its last release, Seven, along with a plethora of Mumbo Gumbo favorites at the Palms Playhouse, located at 13 Main Street in Winters. Move those seats into the hallway.
