Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center
TOM RIGNEY AND FLAMBEAU
Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center is proud to present electrifying violinist/composer Tom Rigney, who joins forces with some of the finest musicians on the San Francisco roots music scene to form Tom Rigney and Flambeau, a band that will tear the roof off of anyplace that has one and raise the spirits of everyone around. Specializing in Blazin’ Cajun and Zydeco two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, Boogie Woogie piano, and heart-breakingly beautiful ballads and waltzes - they generate enough heat and energy to ignite a dance floor and lift an audience to its feet!!
Rigney, now entering his second decade at the helm of Flambeau, has stepped into the spotlight with a vengeance. Flambeau showcases his passionate, virtuoso fiddling, his commanding stage presence, his range, depth, and originality as a composer, and of course, those notorious red boots. His bandmates are veterans of the great bands of Charles Brown, Queen Ida, Clifton Chenier, and others.

Thanks to the wonderful support of our community, exciting progress on the renovation of the State Theatre is happening: "The Wall" is down, the new stage is going up, and we look forward to re-opening the expanded State Theatre in Fall 2014, with 335 seats and a dance floor. We are excited about bringing a greater variety of talent, and bigger name artists to Auburn.
