The weekend before New Years I went out west to take in some Zydeco and Cajun music and dancing. I sawSteve Riley and the Mamou Playboys doing a mix of Cajun and Zydeco at Miller's Zydeco Hall of Fame in Lawtel, LA. I also saw several Zydeco bands: Corey Ledet abnd his Zydeco band and Lil Pookie and the Zydeco Senasation at Miller's on Friday at the same event as Steve Riley, Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band at the Opelousas Mayor's Gala on Sauturday, and Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie at Whiskey Landing in Henderson, LA on Sunday. I also went to the Cajun music jam at the Savoy Music Center which happens every Saturday morning in in Savoy LA and on Sunday saw Forest Huval and Al Berard at MeGee's Landing in Henerseon, LA. They are shown in order of mention except for Geno where it was too crowded and dark to take pictures but here is an earlier photo of him at a festival in New Orleans.
Here is what I found around this time in 2011: Taking in Zydeco Music in Opelousas Louisiana and More and Taking in Cajun Music in the Lafayette Louisiana Area. It is a great area for music anytime. Here are the 2012 pictueres.
