Complete with good food, stiff drinks and a lively atmosphere, Lagniappe is also the place to listen to local musicians every night of the week. This month, Lagniappe will host a number of talented jazz and bluegrass artists such as KJ Circles Band, Zach Larmer Electric Band and most notably, The Wynwoods. What started as a project among friends to record original material while studying music at the University of Miami, The Wynwoods have developed from a shared interest of bluegrass roots, resulting in a dynamic sound of their own.
