July 15th, 2017 --- OC Cajun Food & Music Celebration

Live Cajun/Zydeco Music featuring

Lisa Haley and The Zydekats & Dennis G & The Zydeco Trail Riders

Celebrating The Cross Cultural Influences of The OC And Louisiana Cajun and Creol Food & Drink tasting

Celebrate the Cross Cultural Influences of the OC and Louisiana Community Action Partnership of Orange County hosts OC Cajun Food & Music Celebration for the benefit of the OC Food Bank Garden Grove, CA

Community Action Partnership of Orange County (CAPOC) will be hosting their first ever OC Cajun Food & Music Celebration of benefit to its OC Food Bank. The event will take place on Saturday July 15th, 2017 from 3pm -7pm at Mile Square Park – Sports Field D in Fountain Valley, CA (16400 Brookhurst Street, Fountain Valley, CA 92708). Admission to this event benefits the OC Food Bank and more information on the event and affordable ticket prices can be found at www.ocfoodbank.org/cajun. A $10 online discount from the general admission price of $50 is available using the discount code of Cajun10 prior to the day of the event. Admission for children 5 and under is free.

This first ever OC Cajun Food & Music Celebration to benefit CAPOC and its OC Food Bank will host local restaurants, wineries, and breweries highlighting their regionally inspired dishes and drinks, all celebrating the amazing cross cultural influences of Louisiana and Orange County. All attendees will have the opportunity to taste samples of food and beverages from vendors, which is all included in the one admission price of your ticket. For children and those not drinking alcohol, a lower price is offered. The event features live performances from Grammy nominee Lisa Haley and the Zydekats and Dennis G and the Zydeco Trail Riderz for a family friendly music and dance experience. A shaded dance floor is being provided along with tables, chairs and umbrellas.

Curtis Gibbs, CAPOC Director of Planning and Fund Development who has travelled extensively in Louisiana over the last ten years, has these observations: “One major cross cultural influence between Louisiana and Orange County are the respective Vietnamese communities resulting in Cajun inspired seafood restaurants under Vietnamese ownership in Orange County. For those that have experienced both, one will note differences in how crawfish and shrimp are served back in Louisiana and here in Orange County. Another interesting cross cultural connection between Louisiana and Orange County is the introduction of Mexican food in the South early in the 1900’s, as a result of the Tamale Trail across Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, and such tamales can still be found to this day in Louisiana. Thus, having Taco Bell as an event sponsor, fits into our theme of cross cultural connections.”

Long term funders of CAPOC and the OC Food Bank providing sponsorship for this event include: the PIMCO Foundation, Taco Bell, SCAN Health Plan, and Corporate Business Systems, Inc. As a media sponsor, the OC Weekly is helping to market the event. The OC Food Bank is a program of Community Action Partnership of Orange County. In 2016, the OC Food Bank distributed more than 22 million pounds of food to vulnerable neighbors. For more information, go to www.ocfoodbank.org/cajun. Come out and celebrate with us!

*Report on the Portland Waterfront Blues Fest—June 30-July 4

The fest was a grand success! There were dancers from all over the country & the large dance floor was always packed. The weather was near perfect.

The Revelers played Friday night plus there was Cajun & zydeco all Saturday & Sunday w/ Chubby Carrier, Donna Angelle, Pine Leaf Boys, The Revelers,

Jeffery Broussard, Cedryl Ballou & TooLoose--plus there were dance lessons between each band set on the large dance floor.

To top it off there was a back yard dance & potluck party with Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys Monday at Jamie Morgan’s home in Vancouver.

 

*Rhythm & Roots Festival—Labor Day WeekendNinigret State Park, Charlestown, RI. Go to www.rhythmandroots.com for all the details.

Don’t forget Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys play a pre-festival dance Thursday night, Aug. 31, 7:00 PM at The Towers in Narragansett. Go to www.mamouplayboys.com for details.

 

*Festivals Acadiens, Lafayette, LA--Oct. 12-16

Our rate at the Ramada Inn on Evangeline Thruway will again be $65 + tax/night. This rate will apply from Wed., Oct. 11 through Mon., Oct. 16.

If you plan to arrive early or stay late, I am sure the hotel will honor the same rate.

The hotel is holding 50 rooms/night for our group, & may have additional rooms available if you are tardy in making your reservation.

Our booking code is “Festivals Acadiens Zydeco Group Rate.” The hotel front desk phone number is 337-233-6815.

If any issue when you call to book, ask to be transferred to Lashea Dugas (337-408-2808)—Carla has  retired. If you continue to have problems booking, contact me at dickbrainard@gmail.com.

The breakfast is about to what it used to be—the only difference is there are no large bowls of cut fruit, & we have to serve ourselves with coffee from the large urn rather than wait for someone to come around with a pot. The pool & spa were cleaned for us the day we arrived last time. The rooms are the same, with some basic repairs. All in all, it’s good to be back, plus able to park near our rooms & not have to go inside & use an elevator.

Go to www.festivalsacadiens.com  for details. The festival runs all day Saturday & Sunday, plus;

    *Terry & the Bad Boys @ Feed & Seed Thursday at 9:00 PM

From Dana D

 

 

Hello all..Happy 4th of July..We had a great dance last week to raise money for Beccarae Calato, who has cancer..I do believe she is in Mexico as I write this seeking some other types of non-Western treatments for her condition..We will wish her well, and lots of people did on Friday night last..It was a very warm, receptive, and appreciative crowd of people who came to show some love..the band was cool too, w/Andre, Billy, Lloyd, Julius, Cj, and Timm from Andres and, Motordude and the Flames..it sounded good too so thanks Andre for doing the sound. and also to Lisa L..for doing yeoman's work as my toe is pretty much cracked which is why I was in a boot..But the whole night was great.Really, for those who missed it you missed a wonderful night..And Beccarae danced!! so thanks again, oh and we raised over $2500 dollars for her, 800+ plus from the Eagles, mine, Lisas and Bill Resnicks order..Thanks to all..

 

This weekend we have a very unusual lineup in the terms of TWO SHOWS ON THE SAME WEEKEND..

 

First, Rusty Metoyer makes his debut with his Band, Zydeco Krush, from Lake Charles, La..this is Rusty's only time out this year, so come down and support him..music at 9..doors 8, lessons 8:30..Rusty is a really talented guy who plays great..So show up!! lol..and spread the word..

 

THEN ON SUNDAY, The Pine Leaf Boys show back up to play their great mix of stuff..This is a really really good band as well, and has played Eagles many times..they always put on a good show..Doors 5, music 5:30 w/a potluck..we are doing 2 shows in one weekend as that is how it is being scheduled and also I wont' do any next week due to some personal matters I have to attend to..So come both times..For the people who are always asking me about "new bands or out-of-town bands, " here's two of the best and younger bands around..

 

Thanks all and have a nice 4th..

Thank also to Lisa Lee, who again I wouldn't be able to make this happen if she wasn't around..
