Dare County Arts Council cordially invites you to the Bayou Ball on Saturday, October 27 at Pirate’s Cove Pavilion in Manteo from 7pm-12am.
The centerpiece of the Bayou Ball is a full night of entertainment by two-time Grammy Award winning musician Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience.
“It isn’t every day that a Grammy Award winning musician comes to the Outer Banks to perform,” said DCAC President Randi O’Sullivan of Rodanthe. “I can’t wait to see Terrance play at the Bayou Ball, and to share that experience with artists and supporters of our arts community.”
Simien, who is an 8th generation Louisiana Creole, and his Zydeco Experience band have performed Zydeco roots music to over 45 countries throughout their 35 years together.
"We're truly honored to be performing at Dare County Arts Council’s Bayou Ball, and we're really looking forward to reconnecting with the righteous community on the Outer Banks,” said Terrance Simien. “Together we'll celebrate the joy of live music and a shared commitment to diversity in the performing arts. Laissez les bon temps rouler!”
Presented by TowneBank, the Bayou Ball will be complimented with delicious Cajun and Creole cuisine, a silent auction full of fine art and exclusive packages from local businesses, as well as vibrant décor that will transfer you to Louisiana’s bayou.
“TowneBank is honored to support the Dare County Arts Council’s Bayou Ball,” said Taylor Sugg, Towne’s North Carolina regional president. “The Bayou Ball will be a great night of fun, entertainment, and good food, all for a good cause. TowneBank has been a long-time supporter of the Dare County Arts Council and we look forward to a fun and successful Bayou Ball.”
The Bayou Ball is Dare County Arts Council’s annual fundraiser, which enables the nonprofit organization to fulfill their mission and bring unique programs to Dare County, like Terrance Simien’s Creole for Kidz and the History of Zydeco, which is coming to Dare County schools October 24-26.
Tickets to the Bayou Ball are $125 per person and are available here and at Dare County Arts Council in downtown Manteo. Guests are also able to reserve tables of eight for $1,500. Seating is limited, so be sure to reserve your tickets in advance.
As the event’s Michelangelo sponsor for the second consecutive year, TowneBank is also supporting Dare County Arts Council’s Power of Art program, which is designed to give those with disabilities the opportunity to create and make critical decisions through unique art programs and events.
