From Dick Brainard – Louisiana Events

Mardi Gras Week:

I will send  a more complete Mardi Gras music schedule the first of February. And get your reservation at Fairfield Inn. The hotel will put you on a waiting list when full. There are always cancellations—we had 10 last minute cancellations at Christmas-New Year week.


Gator–by-the-Bay Fest over Mother’s Day Weekend in San Diego will have an outstanding Cajun-Zydeco lineup featuring Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas, Horace Trahan & the Ossun Express, Terry & the Bad Boys & the Revelers. Hats off to Peter Oliver for assembling another wonderful lineup!



Portland Waterfront Blues Fest:

Cajun & zydeco will be Saturday & Sunday, July 4-5, noon-10 pm each day, plus Chubby Carrier will play the blues cruise Friday afternoon (time to be determined). A special festival zydeco pass including the cruise will be available around Valentine’s Day. It will be $100 or less (to be determined). I will send the purchase code when it is ready. The full Cajun-zydeco lineup will include Chubby, Terry & Bad Boys, Mason Trail (BooZoo grandson), Kevin Naquin & the Ossun Express & Creole Soul featuring Corey Ledet,  plus our local zydeco band TooLoose. Each band will play once each day for 90 minutes. And the zydeco pass gives you full rein of the rest of the festival. I will also be given rate info for our partner hotels—hoping for a discount.


2019 is in the book—it was a great time dancing in Lafayette at Feed & Seed, Vermilionville, Artmosphere, LA 31 Brewery, KPC Hall in Grand Coteau, Blue Moon, R&B, and elsewhere between Christmas & New Year. Thank you all who helped make it a wonderful success. Feed & Seed was more crowded than ever before & the music was awesome.

Now it’s on to Mardi Gras weekend February 20-25. Much has already been confirmed, but a lot is yet to be announced.

The big event-as always-will be Gerry Spanger’s Outdoor Dance Party on Saturday, the 22nd. with Geno Delafose & French Rockin’ Boogie. In case of rain the event will be held at LaPoussiere.

Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Zydeco Band will play the R&B on Monday the 24th.

Feed & Seed schedule is:

    Corey Ledet & His Zydeco Band on Thursday the 20th.

    Terry & the Bad Boys on Friday the 21st.

    The Revelers on Saturday the 22nd.

    Closed for private party the 23rd.

    Horace Trahan & the Ossun Express the 24th.

    Closed Mardi Gras Day

    Start times are yet to be determined depending on parade schedules.

Yet to be announce are Vermilionville, Buck & Johnny’s Saturday Zydeco Breakfast, Artmosphere, Blue Moon,  LaPoussiere, & events in Opelousas, Eunice, Mamou, Iota, Route 92 Bar, Pat’s Atchafalaya, Lakeview Park, O’Darby’s, plus other venues. So much to do so bring your extra pair of dance legs!

As for our group accommodations at Fairfield Inn, I haven’t yet received a list of room reservations—but it will likely be a full house, so get your reservations in before it’s too late.

From Dana D. Almeda, Ca

Hi folks..wanted to just say hello..in case you noticed, I've been putting out my blurbs evey other week these days due to the fact that we are putting on dances every other week, on so far the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month..It works out well for a lot of reasons..So we'll be doing for the near future..


That said, wanted to just say thanks to all who showed up when Annie Staniec played with the Zydeco All-Stars,featuring Billy Wilson, Jim Scott, Willy Jordan, LLoyd Meadows, and special Guest Andre Thierrry..it was really a geat sound, a great lineup, one I'm proud to say I put together, and also for doing the sound, and the vibe in the room was realy nice..It was fitting for the last dance of 2019 and now we are in the 2020 land..We are starting off the year with a speical dance with Andre Thierry,Celebrating Terry Carlisle's 85th Birthday Party.Terry has always told me he was the same age as Elvis and is!!! Terry is an inspirtation to many of us and moves better than most of us and he has a good 15 years on most of us if not more..It's always a good party and we've done it the last 3 years so we'll do it again..


We will also be celebrating another long-time Zydeco Dancers' B-0ay as well..Gilbert Love, who's been dancing with us since we started, and has not only won our Annual Costume Contest a few times at Halloween, but also won the 1st and only Zydeco Dance Contest at the Hall with Lisa Mitchell if my memory serves me right..So we'll be celebrating these two great guys, good dancers, and their respective days..With Andre Thierry!! the best player in the Zydeco/French Creole Scene today..Doors 5, music 5:45ish with a potluck if you want to bring some food, but make sure you bring your dancing shoes....spread the word and we hope to see you there..


Then on the 26th, we'll have the band that started it out, the Mighty Motordude Zydeco come back for their first show of the year at the Hall..Kind of hard to believe they started doing dances at the Eagles in 1993..wow..But they are still a great dance band amd have great playes in the band..Nobody quite sings like LLoyd Meadows and Willy Jordan..So doors 5, music at 5:45ish with a potluck as usual...


Then some teaching gigs: I'll be at the ECR Pub in Belmont with Andre on the 21st of Jan..

Then I'll be doing a Mardi Gras Dance up in Marin County at the JCC with the Zydeco Flames and will have flyers for a dancers discount at the dance on Sunday..That dance will be on Feb. 8..


AND on Feb..a very special persons birthday will be celebrated at the Eagles with Andre, although the person doesn't want their identity reveled..So we have a nice lineup coming up, pretty much every other Sunday for the time beng..We'll see how it goes..


Saturday the Niners play the Vikings in Santa Clara and it will be a good game..Go NIners..Who will win..

Niners 4Life..

I do thank you for the support that has been extended to Lisa and I for the 24 years of dong this stuff..We'll see you down the Zydeco Road..

As the grandson of the world-renowned Cajun accordion-builder Larry Miller. helping in his grandfather’s shop from a very early age, he met and was influenced by some of the greatest names in Louisiana music.  “This is what I grew up with. I thought everyone listened to Cajun music all the time,” Miller says. Inspired by the constant contact with famed Cajun and Creole musicians, the steady stream of house parties and jams at his grandfather’s shop, Miller has been playing since receiving his first toy accordion at age 5, and also plays fiddle, guitar, bass, and his latest obsession, steel guitar. He’s gone on to become a legendary Cajun musician himself.
Having played widely throughout the U.S. and traveling all over the world in his 32 years, as founding member of Pine Leaf Boys and member of the Red Stick Ramblers Miller has performed with just about every renowned Cajun artist in Louisiana, and an extensive list of venues rivaling that of a musician twice his age. 
Asked how he came to the Aces trio configuration, Miller says, “I wanted to do something more homey, like comfort food-you know, like a great gumbo. Something that would stick to your ribs.“My favorite places to play are the old opera houses and the dance halls. The places with low ceilings, dark, not always good sound. The grittier places.”
What inspires and drives Miller is his passion for bringing back traditional Cajun music and letting people know that “Cajun music is alive! It’s happening! It’s the real thing! Come check it out!”

We really enjoyed dancing to Andre Thierry Sunday October 14th.
