Creole Stomp shows have become legendary for the heat and passion conveyed from the stage – music with emotion and energy that jumps from the band.   In fact, over the years the band has become informally known as “The Grateful Dead of Creole Music,” for their well-oiled, dancer-driven, crowd pleasing marathon jams and improvisation.  Traditional Louisiana Cajun two-steps, reels, and waltzes sizzle in the stew along with Creole blues and mazurkas.

Individual tickets are $35.   Student tickets are $20.  

A Mardi Gras buffet is available before the concert in the adjoining dining room for an additional $30, plus tax.  A limited number of T-shirts will be available at the show at $20 each.  A cash bar will also be available.   

To purchase individual tickets, call the box office at 219-836-3255 or visit www.TheatreAtTheCenter.com.

Founded in 1991, the 410-seat TATC is a year-round professional theater at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, Indiana.
