Album Notes
Like their earlier award-winning recordings, New Riverside Ramblers newest album "Lache Pas la Patate" (Don't Drop the Potato) offers a generous helping of spirited Cajun dance music. The album covers a spectrum from old-style fiddle tunes, lively two-steps, soulful waltzes, gritty blues to rockin' honky-tonk cuts – all inspired by the sounds of the dance halls of Louisiana.

Although the band is a long-standing pillar of the Cajun/Zydeco scene in the Twin Cities, the new album marks their initial recording with three new band members. John Terr (accordion, guitar, vocals) made a pioneering move to Cajun country in the mid-1970’s to absorb the music and continues to reflect the masters of a bygone Cajun generation. AJ Srubas (fiddle, pedal steel guitar) is making waves in the Cajun music scene and tours nationally with Blake Miller and the Old-Fashioned Aces. Karl Smelker (bass, vocals) is well known from the Fabulous Minnesota Barking Ducks. They join the band’s veterans, Eric Mohring (fiddle, vocals) of Café Accordion Orchestra and the mighty Paul Loughridge (percussion) of JJ’s Zydeco Paydirt, who carry on the legacy of the Minnesota’s groundbreaking Cajun band, The Bone Tones. With Karen Kleinspehn (guitar) rounding out the driving rhythm section, the Ramblers are not afraid to add their own twists and turns to the deep roots of Cajun music.

The band twice won the Cajun French Music Association’s award for the best Cajun recording released outside Louisiana, and they took first place at the Americana/Roots Band Contest at the 2016 MN State Fair.

“NEW RIVERSIDE RAMBLERS is one of the best traditional Cajun music bands outside of Louisiana. Perhaps one of the best traditional Cajun music bands in Cajun music today ..." - Pete Bergeron, KRVS radio, Lafayette, Louisiana

"...Your band is a national treasure..." - Gina Forsyth, Fiddler with Bruce Daigrepont, the Mid-City Aces, and others, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana
