 POMPANO BEACH, Fla.  (November 2, 2016) – The 2017 South Florida Crawfish Festival, presented by CrawDebauchery, will offer a New Orleans-flavored performer lineup that will be sure to draw big crowds to the Pompano Beach Amphitheater Field over the April 1-2 weekend.

Among the performers event organizer Don Matthews has booked include Maggie Koerner; Chubby Carrier; The Revelers; Roddie Romero & The Hub City All-Stars; Cha Wa featuring Mardi Gras Indians; Dwayne Dopsie; The Suitcase Junket; Raw Oyster Cult; The Hip Abduction; The Stooges Brass Band; Darcy Malone & The Tangle; and The Rodeo Clowns.

Carrier, The Revelers, as well as Roddie Romero & The Hub City All-Stars, will perform on both days of the festival.

“We feel this a terrific lineup with some great performers,” said Matthews. “We’ll be finalizing the headliner next week, which I’m sure will draw attention.”

Koerner, a Shreveport, La.-born songwriter, will be making a return trip to Pompano Beach after staging a sizzling show at the 2016 festival. The former front-woman for the New Orleans funk-band Galactic, her CDs include, “Neutral Ground” (2013) and “Quarter Life” (2011).

Considered “the world’s premier Zydeco showman,” Carrier will also be returning to perform at the South Florida Crawfish Festival. He has recorded 10 CDs during his 22-year professional career. He and his band travel 150-175 days a year playing at various festivals around the world.

“Maggie and Chubby are certainly fan favorites,” said Matthews. “But, I believe our 2017 event will offer a diversified musical lineup that will appeal to everyone.”

In addition to New Orleans-style music and food, the festival will include a Gumbo Rumble, Krewe Competition, massive crawfish boil and art vendors.

On both days, the festival will position a hardwood Zydeco dance floor by one of the music stages for swing dancers. Additionally, there will be an area for kids complete with crawfish races, face painting and jugglers.

“We’re very excited about next year’s event,” added Matthews. “We feel it’s going to be even bigger and better than the 2016 version.”


Advance tickets for the festival will be on sale soon via the event’s website – Single-day as well as two-day general admission and VIP ticket packages will be available.
