Live From Lafayette- It's Wayne Toups!

The weather cleared later, just in the nick of time for Crouchstock which was held this evening, at Parc International, in downtown Lafayette. Crouchstock is an annual fundraiser in honor of a young man, Jacob Crouch, who tragically took his own life at 24 years of age. The Jacob Crouch Foundation, created by his parents, is dedicated to raising awareness and educating others about this problem in our society, in hopes of saving lives.

It was a triple header with The Richard Revue, The Lost Bayou Ramblers, and Wayne Toups and Zydecajun, playing an awesome 6 hours of fabulous Cajun music. We met a group of friends at the seafood booth for dinner. Of course, I could not pass up the fresh gulf fried shrimp. Cest' bon, cher! The Lost Bayou Ramblers were playing their well seasoned brand of traditional Cajun music that earned them a Grammy nomination in 2009'. 

 
Then the legendary Wayne Toups and Zydecajun took the stage, playing their hot as Tabasco, Zydeco-Cajun music and the rowdy crowd went absolutely wild! Wayne, you out-did yourself! Had no problem dancing off the fried shrimp dinner. It was a total blast and for a great cause that raised almost $50,000! Let the Good Times Roll!

Wonderful!!!! I love the way you describe their music...hot as Tabasco sauce!!! You are so clever!!! An Arts and Entertainment writer is what you should be; if you are not paid for that already, I think there is a second career waiting for you!!! Love the music...so glad you are so tech savvy, and that I got to enjoy this! Cheers! Janine XO

Thanks for your kind words, Janine. My camera was having issues and the audio didn't come out well. Cest' la vie! This band was so powerful that I would have had to have stood a block away to get good sound! So glad that you enjoyed it.

LOL- I was so blessed to have been born into a family and culture that loves and enjoys life. And my mother was the best cook on earth! Even her name meant "best cook" in French!
