CULTURAL SERIES CONTINUES WITH STEVE RILEY AND THE MAMOU PLAYBOYS

Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys will come to NMSU at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the Atkinson Recital Hall. Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys began more than twenty years ago with a reputation for excellence. Their stunningly clean and cohesive performance of Cajun French music from the backwaters of Southwest Louisiana propelled them into the world music limelight early on, and by their third release, Trace of Time, had garnered them a Grammy nomination in the worldwide field of traditional folk music. They earned others in 2004 for Bon Reve, in 2009 for Live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and again in 2011 for their latest release, Grand Isle. From the day they started, they have gone from strength to strength. Never before in Cajun music has a comparable wealth of skills been brought to the same table.

Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for NMSU students plus applicable service charges at non-box office locations. They can be purchased at the Pan Am Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster Outlets and online at ticketmaster.com. For more information, contact the Pan Am Center Box Office at 575-646-1420
