Join us at Balloon Fiesta for a night of exciting, eclectic music!
As unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, doo-wop, and “anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike.
Santa Fe’s Matthew Andrae opens the event at 4:30 p.m., while County Road 5 closes out the evening at 8:00 p.m.
Performance included with admission to the Balloon Fiesta evening session. Come for the balloons. Stay for the music.
