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 WebsiteVideos:Opening Festival L'AcadieLa Recolte Rocking the Liberty
