Jan. 26 and 27 have BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet playing in Lafayette and New Iberia, respectively.
Live in Louisiana presents the band Rolling Stone magazine once called “The best damn dance band you’ll ever hear.” LiL is headed up by former Louisiana Crossroads Director Todd Mouton and Bob Miller, both of whom seek to produce amazing performamces showcasing music indigenous to Louisiana. BeauSoleil plays at Vermilionville at 7 p.m. Jan. 26 and the next night at 8 p.m. at Sliman Theatre in New Iberia.
"BeauSoleil is a touchstone group for lovers of Cajun and Creole culture and history, and we’ll create very intimate settings for listening as well as dancing in both of these great venues,” says Mouton in a press release. Both facilities are non-smoking shows with beverages for sale.
Tickets are $15 for the performance at either location and can be purchased here in advance. However, if you want to plan ahead and buy a ticket now for The Malone Brothers performances in March, you can buy a ticket to either BeauSoleil and either Malone show and pay $25 for the two. The Brothers play March 29 and 30.
If you go to Live in Louisina’s site and sign up for the mailing list so you can be the first to hear about what hijinx they have brewing, a pair of exclusive mp3s of BeauSoleil will be yours, as well.
Call LiL at 322-1622 with any questions or check out the site listed above.
