A Blues Filled New Orleans Party Comes to Metropolis With Creole Stomp

Audience favorite Creole Stomp returns to Metropolis Performing Arts Centre with their high energy, blues filled concert March 19, 2022.

Dennis Stroughmatt and Creole Stomp, the hardest working band in Louisiana music bring energy, groove, Cajun, Creole, Swamp-Pop, and Zydeco in a blues filled New Orleans party! At a Creole Stomp show, everyday day is Mardi Gras!

Some have called Creole Stomp a "blues infused creole-zydeco dance machine" and others have called the band "the Grateful Dead of creole music," notorious for its creative and improvisational style. Dennis Stroughmatt and Creole Stomp is simply a powerhouse Louisiana style band that serves up tradition with sides of entertaining swamp-pop, blues and honky-tonk.

Having performed across the United States from Providence to Las Vegas, Creole Stomp makes its home in southern Illinois...but most fans still believe it's from Louisiana!! Formed in 2002, by the Creole French speaking Dennis Stroughmatt, Creole Stomp continues to entertain audiences from coast to coast with a Cajun accordion, fiddle and electric guitar driven sound that has become legendary for the heart and passion conveyed from the stage-music with emotion and energy that literally jumps from the band.

Audiences can't sit still, and Creole Stomp doesn't let them. No matter the venue, wherever they come from, and wherever they go, Creole Stomp is a band that knows how to throw a Louisiana party!
