We are very proud to have a world class guitarist right here in St. Francisville performing a show filled with amazing guitar licks, original songs.... it will be funky and jazzy and even a little Santana thrown in! Arnold will blow us away ... and so will our own Nancy Roppolo with the wonderful clarinet of Susan Aysen, Billy Calloway on guitar, and the killer harmonica of Joe Roppolo!
The photo above was taken by Photographer Jill Moore at the Tunica Hills Music Festival. Arnold and his band, The Bosque Kings, were playing at Magnolia Cafe and blew us away! The Temple show will be more acoustic but will still be a toe-tapping, head swaying night of music unlike any of our previous shows, so be sure to get your tickets now and bring your friends!
