La Recolte Cajun BandLa Recolte Cajun Band / 11 AM • 2 PM

La Recolte Band has been together since April of 2012. This five-member band consists of an array of talented musicians from the heart of Acadiana. The name of the band, "La Recolte" (The Harvest), was influenced by their desire to keep traditions alive and inspired the release of their debut CD "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes..." They have been featured on the Grand Ole Opry style show, Rendez-vous Des Cajun, at the historical Liberty Theatre in Eunice, LA; Downtown Alive in Lafayette, La; and performed in New Brunswick Canada in August 2013 for the yearly Acadie Celebrations in the region. La Recolte is traditional and highly influenced by the South Louisiana dance hall music of the mid-1900's. La Recolte is sure to get you on the dance floor. Belting out waltzes of relationships gone bad as well as driving two-steps that will get you pumping. • Visit Website

The band grew naturally out of a bunch of friends' love of music, zany antics, irresistible rhythms, good times and spicy food. The band performs Cajun & Zydeco classics in French and English, original tunes and they even Cajun-ify classic songs like Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” and Steve Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” to name a few. As they say in Cajun country, 'Laissez les bons temps rouler!' • Visit Website

Dirtfoot - a Dose of Gypsy Punk Country Grumble boogie. "Here’s their deal: Imagine Nick Cave on a bed of rusty nails, the cover of “Gin and Juice” often mis-attributed to Phish (it was actually the Gourds), some old-timey “Dem Bones,” Old Crow Medicine show culture-clash, and that subtle fecal stench of Mr. Bungle skronk sax craziness: Get theses elements, let them stew in an oaken barrel for a number of years and out comes Shreveport, Louisiana’s Dirtfoot." - Spencer, Synthesis.net
