“Mary Newland and the Blue Bayou Band brought the house down for two sold out shows at The Bank Theatre. The musical artistry and skill of the Blue Bayou Band provide the perfect vehicle for Mary Newland’s outstanding vocal performance of the songs made famous by Linda Ronstadt.  The Bank Theatre is proud to have helped launch this truly exciting musical experience. This band is the real deal!”
