The Cajun Fun Continues

The Cajun good times continued this evening at Festival International 2009'! With 6 stages of vastly different international music going on, simultaneously within a 6 block radius, it was a blow out of tremendous proportions. The crowds were huge and since the perfect weather is expected to last all weekend, they are likely to largely increase as the weekend unfolds. The mood was wonderfully excited, mixed with jubilance, and at times electric !


We started off at Scene Lafayette where Sherman Robertson and his hot blues band were playing. There was a fais do do there and a whole lot of street dancing going on.
We were in need of some refreshment so we dined at The Filling Station Pub and Grille, where there was an awesome rockabilly band, the Roebucks, playing on the patio.



Next was the fabulous Alpha YaYa Diallo, from Guinea-West Africa at Scene Fais Do Do, with his wildly sought after band. Very inspirational African guitar, percussion and dance.
Then it was on to hear Miss Divine Jones at Scene Heritage with her sassy Texas swing and talented band. The crowd loved this group and dancing was nitty-gritty, jitterbug-swing.



Then for some foot-stomping Zydeco with Corey Ledet and His Zydeco Band. And imagine we get to do it all over again starting tomorrow morning. Twelve straight hours of fantastic music, food, dancing , and fun! See ya'll there. Let the good times roll, cher!
