Get Crazy as a Cat

Le Chat Lunatique • dirty jazz

Wes Naman

With a musical style in the vein of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, Le Chat Lunatique is a dirty jazz band that formed in New Mexico in early 2005 and has kept audiences swinging ever since. This local band has carved out a Gypsy jazz subgenre for themselves, using descriptors like filthy, mangy and slyly sweet. I can say from personal experience that Le Chat Lunatique is a blast to see live; their fast-paced beats and high energy songs are what you might call “get up and dance” music.

The boys are playing the Pueblo Harvest Cafe (2401 12th Street NW) on Friday, Sept. 4, as part of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center's “Party on the Patio” Summer Music Series. The family-friendly cafe features it's full menu (fancy preparations of Native American dishes,) appetizers, beer and cocktails as well as an all-you-can-eat pizza special that is included with the concert price of $10. Le jazz starts sizzling at 6pm so if you're looking to get off your seat and do some serious dancing, the Pueblo Harvest Cafe is the place to be this Friday.
