With gorgeous weather predicted for the weekend in Cajun country, it's guaranteed to be fun, with beaucoup outdoor activities going on. This week's Downtown Alive will feature T.K. Hulin and Smoke, a popular Swamp Pop and rock n' roll band that has been a fave in Acadiana since the 60's, and is still going strong. Here's a little clip that I took of them playing at Ryhthms on the River, in River Ranch. That is my friend Sally, the blonde, dancing in the light pink shirt and white slacks. Geaux Sally, this one's for you, cher!
Hope that ya'll are having a wonderful week! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!
