We hope your toes are ready for tappin’, because Vancouver-based duo The Mudbugs will give a special performance at Miss Nola’s Café from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 7. The concert is in honor of downtown Camas’ First Friday event, which is a Mardi Gras-themed tribute to dogs with a doggie parade, costume contest, and doggie-owner look-alike contest. Everyone—two-legged and four-legged—will be decked out in their wildest Mardi Gras outfits and when they get hungry, Miss Nola’s will come to the rescue with classic Low Country Cajun and Creole cuisine.
The Mudbugs are roots based with blues, country, and zydeco at the core. You’ll hear original tunes influenced by Clifton Chenier, Doc Watson, Hank Williams Sr., and Snooks Eaglin, as well as some favorite Americana covers. The Mudbugs are KG Jackson on vocals and guitar with Candy Jackson on accordion, washboard, triangle, and backup vocals.
Miss Nola’s Café, owned by Chef Tim and Melissa McCusker, is located at 401 N.E. 4th Ave. in downtown Camas. The McCuskers met in New Orleans and garnered a considerable amount of experience cooking Low Country cuisine during his tenure in the South. Cajun, Creole, and Southern flavors are the inspiration for the menu. Cocktails like the traditional Hurricane and Charleston Mule are available to guests. The walls are decorated with keepsakes from New Orleans and gifts that people have brought back from Mardi Gras. To learn more, visit missnolas.com.
