Hey folks - just a reminder that we are quickly coming up on the 5th Annual Bayou Round Up in Lafayette, Louisiana October 18 & 19th - details, schedule and registration info is all at http://www.bayouroundup.com A lot of you have come to our show in Austin in the Springtime - but if you haven't checked out our Fall show in Lafayette - you really should join us for a super fun and more intimate show in a really special place. The scenery, live music and food (oh man, THE FOOD) is just stellar - and the people are really great. We do a great cruise around the back roads on Friday - last year we followed the Bayou Teche to see the sights and stop for some great plate lunch action and relaxed at Bayou Teche Brewing for some cold beer. That night we cruise back into town where we close off downtown and have special parking all around Parc San Souci and a big Downtown Alive! concert - this year featuring Zydeco Radio and The South Austin Moonlighters. Saturday is the big day out at Historic Blackham Coliseum - and it is a really perfect vintage backdrop for all the cars - its like the old days when you are there. The stage outside is going all day with a fantastic lineup - this year we have: New Natives Brass Band - Lafayette's own New Orleans Style Second Line Brass band kicking things off Rod Melancon - Vermillion Parish native plays greasy, gothic Americana - Imagine Nick Cave meets John Cougar where the prairies meet the marsh. And the big headlining event - BUCK-A-ROUX II - An Allstar tribute to Lafayette's own guitar king Paul "Lil' Buck" Sinegal His longtime musical sweetheart and “Gulf Coast Empress” Ms. Barbara Lynn (”If You Lose Me - You'll Lose A Good Thing”) will be featured along with the “King of Slydeco” and fellow Clifton Chenier band alumni Sonny Landreth. Buck-a-Roux II (an encore of a tribute in Austin, TX) will be co-hosted and musically directed by Lil’ Buck's longtime bandmates and “musical sons” CC Adcock and Sir Reginald Dural. Our Bayou Round Up stage at Blackham Coliseum will be set for fireworks from the very best of Lil’ Buck's friends, family and contemporaries to serve up a whole mess of soul-stirring blues and boogie as a final send-off for one of the greatest, world-class and stylistically unique artists that this region has ever produced.
