Cedar County Cobras

The Mill — Friday, Nov. 20 at 9 p.m.
Gabe’s — Saturday, Nov. 21 at 9:30 p.m.

Call it “acoustic rockabilly,” or call it “dancing blues.” However you describe Cedar Country Cobras’ sound, you have to call it infectious. Made up of two guys, a gal and a small army of string instruments, Cedar County Cobras combine the musical background of each member, from bluegrass to rock, to cook up their signature toe-tapping vibe.

Don’t just take our word for it, though. CCC will celebrate the release of their new album, Delta Ave Juke Joint, with a show at The Mill this Friday night at 8 p.m. You can catch them again the very next night when they open for Natural Child at Gabe’s at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets for CCC’s show at The Mill are $6 at the door; at Gabe’s the show will cost you $10 and tickets can be purchased ahead of time online. Both shows have a 19 and older age minimum, though the Mill’s age restriction doesn’t kick in until 10 p.m. Don’t miss out, and don’t forget your dancin’ shoes!
