"...achingly gorgeous songs..."...Fort Meyers Magazine June 2016 "...the charisma of their duets is uniquely mesmerizing."....Hyperbolium February 2016 Clay Parker and Jodi James, both already established artists in their own right, have been fostering a new and assured voice as a duo. This new direction combines elements of traditional roots music and soulful harmonies delivered with the sincerity found in the early folk singer-songwriter movement. Independently, Parker and James have been solid staples in the Baton Rouge music scene, but their musical collaboration didn't begin until the fall of 2014 when they wrote their first twelve songs together over the course of two weeks while located in different states. They've since worked relentlessly refining themselves as a duo and continue to tour the U. S. in support of their debut EP Clay Parker and Jodi James. “This is an album that will need to be listened to and not just played in the background. It has to marinate in your musical soul--It is for select tastes and for discriminating ears. But it will make an impression…it will.”

This new direction combines elements of traditional roots music and soulful harmonies delivered with the sincerity found in the early folk singer-songwriter movement.

They've since worked relentlessly refining themselves as a duo and continue to tour the U. S. in support of their debut EP Clay Parker and Jodi James. “This is an album that will need to be listened to and not just played in the background.

Let's give a big Red Stick Welcome to Austin Texas alt-folk/Americana singer/songwriter, Ricky Stein. Enjoy with select wines, ice cold beer, delicious supper, plus gelato! www.rickystein.com “Ricky Stein's music is a refreshing, unironic throwback to the days when blues-rock ruled the airwaves. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Stein harnesses the gritty, southern aesthetic personified by classic rock bands like The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and more recently, Shakey Graves, and creates a sound unique unto himself. On "Don't Leave Me Hangin' On," from 2012's Crazy Days, Stein showcases his aptitude as a songwriter while also paying tribute to his roots-rock predecessors. The music is urgent and driving, but also subtle, with unexpected twists and turns that proves an artist can be steeped in tradition without being predictable.” - Ethan Ames, The Deli NYC (Apr 04, 2018)Austin-born, NYC-based singer/songwriter Ricky Stein peddles a fresh brand of Americana and the laid-back traditional/progressive vibe of his hometown. Since moving to New York in August 2016, the guitar-and-harmonica player has been booked at many of the city's premier venues while expanding his ever-growing catalog of original compositions. Already with three critically-acclaimed albums to his name (including the latest, Long Summer, hailed as "among the best country sounds to come out of Austin this year" by the Austin Chronicle), Stein has proved himself to be a keen observer of the world we live in as well as a natural entertainer with a good-humored stage presence. Whether performing as a soloist with a blues harp and a J-45 or going full-throttle with a rock and roll band, Stein consistently delivers a set that is soulful, uplifting, and one that speaks to the present moment.

Enjoy live music with Dorothy LeBlanc. Select wine, beer, & delicious dining. Meet featured artists: Stephanie Huye & Alaine Dibenedetto. Discuss & admire their work. Purchase and commission of art available. Narrative & Abstract Painters: http://h-dart.com/ Stephanie Huye: "My paintings consist of portraits, representational and nonrepresentational. I often use cats, specifically the hairless sphynx, as my “familiar” when I paint myself or my children. I am currently painting a series called The Cuban Series, which is a community of Cuban humans represented by their shoes. On a recent trip there, I photographed pairs of shoes after the owners had arranged them and been briefly interviewed. I believe a person’s shoes tell more about them than the flesh on their face that they did not choose, as society often judges a human by many unchosen aspects: skin color, gender, age, race, and sexual orientation." Alaine Dibenedetto: "To captivate the viewer at first glance in a way that compels them to step closer and read the dialogue between the subject & environment, backstory & descriptive details. To lose themselves in a gripping account composed of symbols, code, maybe hidden text. To be a page-turner they can’t put down. This is the most my paintings can ask." Jazz Guitar provided by cafe favorite Dorothy LeBlanc. Early attendees will share a complimentary bottle of Winemaker Collection Montepulciano D'Abruzzo. Light Hors d'oeuvres provided. Sip on a select glass of wine or ice cold beer, dine on delicious supper and (of course) don't forget the gelato! Pictured Below:Stephanie Huye Alaine Debenedetto Dorothy LeBlanc

Went to where rivers begin as drips off leaves and morning dew. Walked through streets that I realized I’d already seen many times before in dreams. Played a pre-war D-28 that sounded like a wooden building with 40 foot ceilings and no furniture. Got scolded by a luthier due to the layer of scunge on my D-18. He reset the neck anyway. Played guitars I’d never heard of in Weaverville. And when I got home, I was able to separate the music from the noise." Steve Levine is a Baton Rouge singer-songwriter. Steve has released a couple of CD’s under the name Levi Stevenson, and has played around town with The Maggies for the past few years.

"...achingly gorgeous songs..."...Fort Meyers Magazine June 2016 "...the charisma of their duets is uniquely mesmerizing."....Hyperbolium February 2016 Clay Parker and Jodi James, both already established artists in their own right, have been fostering a new and assured voice as a duo. This new direction combines elements of traditional roots music and soulful harmonies delivered with the sincerity found in the early folk singer-songwriter movement. Independently, Parker and James have been solid staples in the Baton Rouge music scene, but their musical collaboration didn't begin until the fall of 2014 when they wrote their first twelve songs together over the course of two weeks while located in different states. They've since worked relentlessly refining themselves as a duo and continue to tour the U. S. in support of their debut EP Clay Parker and Jodi James. “This is an album that will need to be listened to and not just played in the background. It has to marinate in your musical soul--It is for select tastes and for discriminating ears. But it will make an impression…it will.” — John Apice, No Depression Magazine https://cpjjmusic.com

A St. Francisville native and singer for the Drifters, Roppolo’s prowess stemmed from Sundays spent in church. “I grew up in the Baptist Church, and that’s where I got my musical foundation. My mom was the pianist. We were there Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night—and my favorite thing was the music. I started singing as early as I can remember.” Roppolo was also introduced to the blues at a young age by Scott Dunbar, a blues musician from nearby Deer Park, Mississippi, who played frequently throughout the region. “Blues is so close to gospel, and there’s such a fine line between Baptist gospel music—it’s the gospel music that’s closest to blues and country music,” said Roppolo. When Roppolo steps to the mic, anticipation runs through the room. Her voice is full-throated and resonant, especially on the bluesier numbers the band specializes in. In her lower register, she is evocative of contemporary blues artist Beth Hart. But country is her default vernacular. “My original stuff is country—but I’d be hard-pressed to put a label on what kind of musician I am.” Select wines, ice cold beer, supper specials and (of course) gelato available as well as the best espresso beverages in town.
1572757200 Live Music Alma Russ La Divina November 3, 2019 November 3, 2019 4:00 PM 6:00 PM Alma Russ: Live Music. American Idol Contestant Season 1 on ABC ? Western NC Vocalist, Songwriter, Fiddler, Clawhammer Banjo, & Guitar. http://www.almarussofficial.com/ Alma is a singer/songwriter living in western North Carolina. She sings a blend of folk, bluegrass, and mountain ballads and plays fiddle, claw-hammer banjo and guitar. Born in north-central Florida, Alma spent the first 12 years of her life on the family farm in Oxford, a small town about 45 minutes south of Gainesville. Summer vacations with her family to western North Carolina fostered early interests in "Old Time Music." As a child, Alma learned to sing mountain ballads, (traditional songs passed down generations from Scotch-Irish immigrants to the area). The Appalachian culture was also one of Alma's first inspirations for learning to play fiddle. Alison Krauss, an early influence, inspired her to begin fiddle lessons around age 12. It was about this time that Alma's family moved to Whittier, NC, a small town just outside Smoky Mountain National Park. Alma continued learning fiddle and later took claw-hammer banjo lessons with the JAM program (Junior Appalachian Musicians).? Alma was home-schooled up until high school, where she attended Jackson County Early College, graduating with both her high school diploma and Associate of Arts degree simultaneously after 4 years of study. During her high school years, Alma joined in with other bands mostly as a fiddler and has recorded fiddle as a session artist for other bands at studios such as Echo Mountain in Asheville. She began writing and composing music around age 14 and always has songs in various stages of development. Her primary musical influences include country gold, bluegrass, gypsy jazz, and folk. In October 2017, she auditioned with American Idol in Savannah, for Season 1 on ABC and received 3 yeses for the "golden ticket" from Katy Perry, Luke Bryan & Lionel Richie (not featured on the show). Lionel Richie compared her to Dolly Parton and Katy Perry said she was a cross between Alison Krauss and Stevie Nicks. She made it to Hollywood where she performed a cover of Stevie Nicks' song, Edge of Seventeen, (song not featured on the show), before coming back home to North Carolina. One hundred sixty nine golden tickets were awarded out of over seventy thousand applicants and she is honored to have been one of the few golden ticket recipients! Other influences of Alma's style of music include Gillian Welch, Bobbie Gentry, and Emmylou Harris just to name a few. She's been told by some who've seen her perform that she reminds them of artists such as Jewel and Alanis Morissette. Alma continues to play solo shows and still joins in with other bands mainly as a fiddler. She plans to record her songs and ambitions to expand her music career. Her upcoming events are posted regularly on her Facebook page.

"...achingly gorgeous songs..."...Fort Meyers Magazine June 2016 "...the charisma of their duets is uniquely mesmerizing."....Hyperbolium February 2016 Clay Parker and Jodi James, both already established artists in their own right, have been fostering a new and assured voice as a duo. This new direction combines elements of traditional roots music and soulful harmonies delivered with the sincerity found in the early folk singer-songwriter movement. Independently, Parker and James have been solid staples in the Baton Rouge music scene, but their musical collaboration didn't begin until the fall of 2014 when they wrote their first twelve songs together over the course of two weeks while located in different states. They've since worked relentlessly refining themselves as a duo and continue to tour the U. S. in support of their debut EP Clay Parker and Jodi James. “This is an album that will need to be listened to and not just played in the background. It has to marinate in your musical soul--It is for select tastes and for discriminating ears. But it will make an impression…it will.” — John Apice, No Depression Magazine https://cpjjmusic.com

1577944800 Live Music Cumberland County La Divina January 2, 2020 January 2, 2020 6:00 PM 8:00 PM Cumberland County Thursday 6:00pm - 8:00pm Our little cafe is fortunate to host such HUGE talent as Baton Rouge's local and beloved Cumberland County featuring Eric DiSanto and Kristin Courville. When Allentown, Pennsylvania native Kristin Courville met Royersford Pennsylvania’s own Eric DiSanto at a songwriter event in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in the summer of 2016, neither realized the similarities in music, goals and dreams each had. But after one show together in January of 2017, Kristin and Eric knew they were on to something really special. After self producing and recording their debut album, Forty Two Miles, in 2017, which featured radio cuts "Wait For Now" and "Filling Up My Soul" they set out building a local fan base in their adopted Louisiana and touring along the Gulf Coast throughout early 2018. A name change in June 2018 to Cumberland County gave the duo a new look and approach when it came to the business side of making music. With the release of the single, “Flying in the Jet Steam”, produced and recorded in the couple’s own studio, Cumberland County began filling their calendar with shows from Texas to Florida to Nashville to New York City. A live album was recorded in Baton Rouge at the legendary, Red Dragon Listening Room. During the short time Kristin and Eric have been making music together, the duo has had the good fortune of sharing the stage with the likes of Sonny Landreth, Steve Conn, Marcia Ball, James McMurtry, Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack, Sugarcane Jane, Bruce Robison and the Mulligan Brothers … just to name a few. Cumberland County’s live shows have also evolved over time. A mix of fun, original songs have kept audiences entertained while showcasing the duo’s vocal harmonies and songwriting. They’ve developed a sound that reflects their influences that come from rock, country, blues and Americana. https://www.cumberlandcountymusic.com/

1579154400 Live Music The Rough & Tumble La Divina January 16, 2020 January 16, 2020 6:00 PM 8:00 PM The Rough and Tumble : A MUST See! Passing through Baton Rouge on tour. Enjoy an incredible show w/select wine, beer, delicious dining. The Rough & Tumble are excited to be performing at La Divina in Baton Rouge on Thursday January 16th . Join us from 6-8 PM for a great night of music! http://www.theroughandtumble.com/ Baton Rouge will be treated to the newest CD! Written during a time of doggedly trying despite the odds and a self-proclaimed “year of honesty,” The Rough & Tumble's new studio album Howling Back at the Wounded Dog: released on September 6, 2019. Tickets: 100% of Ticket proceeds goes to The Rough & Tumble to offset touring costs:$20 VIP/Supporter: This ticket gets you an autographed copy of the newest CD, Your first beverage FREE*, a FREE GELATO Card, and a saved premium seat! *YES - ANY Beverage at La Divina! (Must be 21+ for adult beverages)$10 Discount/"Save my Seat": This ticket gets you a saved seat for this show! The Rough & Tumble are as easy to detect as a stray dog on your doorstep-- and as difficult to send home. The dumpster-folk, thriftstore-Americana duo, consisting of Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler, have been hobbling around the country in their 16’ camper since 2015, when their Nashville landlord left them without heat during an ice storm for 12 days. Then she tried to hike the rent. Enough was enough, and The Rough & Tumble gave their 30 days notice at their jobs and their lease, sold most of what they owned, and hopped into their shoddily built camper, in spite of the lot salesman's advice. They picked up a couple of actual strays along the way-- two 100lb dogs, Puddle & Magpie Mae-- and have been making themselves at home in living rooms, bars, theaters, and festivals across the country. They've been recognized as a Feature Showcase Artist at 2018 SERFA, and a 2018 honorable mention for the Listening Room Network.Even at their start in 2011, The Rough & Tumble are collectors. Trinkets, instruments, stories shoved in cupholders, and scraps of paper sticking out of old books they never planned to read, the duo couldn’t resist filling their pockets with tiny things that may be useful down the road. Until they hit the road. Limited in space, The Rough & Tumble are a new kind of collector: songwriting with illustration, and arranging each song with a menagerie of instruments, ranging from acoustic guitars to mailbox snares to a banjulele. "Their Americana music is restorative, their performance highly entertaining, their orchestra of unusual instruments intriguing, and… jokes and stories are worthy of an HBO special." (Linda Bolton, Cozy Cabin House Concerts).The stray folkies are as industrious as they are scrappy, releasing five EPs and two albums in their 8 years. The Rough & Tumble’s 2018 release We Made Ourselves a Home When We Didn’t Know, brought the listener to the road and the road to their home, an album “as cozy, comfortable and inviting as a well-worn couch.” (Bill Kopp, Mountain Xpress). This is in addition to their weekly livecast, a monthly blog, a Cook & Color Book, a food blog, 2018 SERFA Official Showcase Artist, and playing upwards of 150 shows a year.

I strive to portray the truthfulness of nature. Nature is healing and inspirational, and her colors and her designs can't be beat. And she is the best teacher. My work is done freehand; my still lifes are painted directly from life without the use of photography. Landscapes are started on location and finished in my studio. My chosen medium is oil but I love to work in pencil and enjoy gouache as well. I find endless still life compositions in my home and gardens. I am absolutely astounded with Louisiana landscapes, especially the ones that encompass the live oak. Drawing the figure from life keeps my drawing skills sharp, and sound compositions are attributed to studying the old masters, Vermeer, Corot, Chardin, Constable, Peter Paul Rubens, and William Trost Richards, among others. I have painted for over 38 years and have studied with professional Arts in the Parks award winning artist Barrie Van Osdell, also with Carol Peebles and Auseklis Ozols of the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and won each of their Faculty Awards. I have also studied with Scott Waddell. I have taken workshops with Michelle Dunnaway. I am a full time artist and also teach oil painting classes in my studio and also teach workshops nationally. I’m a Full Member of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, an Associate with Distinction Member of American Women Artists, the Portrait Society of America, Associate Member of Oil Painters of America, the American Artists Professional League, the Baton Rouge Art League, and the Associated Women in the Arts. I have been juried into and am a member of the International Guild of Realism. I have won awards internationally, nationally and regionally. My work is owned in private and corporate collections. I have had many one person shows and participated in many group shows. I am represented by the Gallery 600 Julia Street in New Orleans. I also exhibit at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and in New York with the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Club. I have been juried into Paint the Parks Top100 and Mini50, Paint America's Top100 and Second100. My work has been juried into the Salon International Competition at the Greenhouse Gallery, San Antonio, Texas. Wade Henderson of Cox Television televised and filmed an interview of myself and my work and the production, named "Delta Hands" has run for several years. I participate in the LSU School of Art Summer Invitational at the LSU School of Art Gallery in the Shaw Center held every year in July. I also participate in the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts Annual Invitational Miniature Exhibition. I have had my work shown in the Louisiana Art and Science Museum in Baton Rouge, the Zigler Museum, the Masur Museum, The Barnwell Museum of Art, The Woman's Hospital and the Baton Rouge Little Theater, and among many other establishments. Other juried competitions I have been accepted into recently are the Richeson Landscape Competition, Oil Painters of America’s Regional Competition.I accept commissions. Please call 225-939-3703 for an appointment. Artist's Statement: My goal is to share the beauty I find. My work is done directly from life and I wish to connect with others the respect I have for my subject. There is a magic quality about paintings that are created from life. They capture the beauty of nature, with the radiance of her glorious colors, details, textures - the designs they create; the vastness of the sky and the air that surrounds it all. Painting in nature and from the brilliance of life is a very serene and an extremely nourishing place to be and serves as a great inspiration to me. My artwork is about communication through peace, caring, respect, order, tranquility and beauty. I blissfully strive to render these qualities in my landscapes, as well as my still life's and figurative compositions, and to share the good and positive forces of life and to connect with all who partake.

1580104800 Live Music Sarah Burton La Divina January 27, 2020 January 27, 2020 6:00 PM 8:00 PM Sarah Burton LIVE at La Divina...on Monday night, January 27th: 6p-8p. Sarah Burton on tour will be passing through Baton Rouge to treat us to her HUGE Talent. Enjoy delicious Supper Specials, Wine selection, Ice Cold Beer...and gelato! On Sarah's Music:"...a voice that draws you in to her compelling narratives, conveying equal amounts of yearning, vulnerability, innocence, and hard-earned wisdom...compare her to the likes of Shawn Colvin, Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, and even rockers like Tom Petty." - John Montagna, Culture Sonar, 3/1/19 http://www.sarahburton.ca/ Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. 3 Minivans, and several greyhound trips later, Sarah has played 200+ shows a year, released 4 albums and played many festivals across North America, finding and sharing the inspiration for hundreds of songs. Rooted in folk, and skirting pop, rock and country – Sarah’s music is a collage of her own adventures, and the people she meets along the way. Her songs have made their way to the big screen, earned college radio charting in US and Canada and commercial radio play in Canada and Europe. 'GIVE ME WHAT I WANT' One bad breakup, two robberies, a few trips to the ER, and moving to the West Texas desert are just a few of the turns that led to the creation of SARAH’s fifth studio album, Give Me What I Want. It’s a vignette of a new age wild west with songs about internet dating, crazy exes, getting older, and that feeling you get when everyone around you is in love and you’re not. In it, Sarah delivers an unapologetic demand with a finger in the air, howling with the underdogs who are sick of getting scraps. It’s a raw and real album that skirts Americana, folk, rock and country; the songs tell classic stories in a modern age from love and lust, to enchantment and disenchantment, and that constant search for fulfillment. Give Me What I Want was recorded in Austin at Jim Eno’s (Spoon) Public Hi-Fi studio, produced by Elijah Ford (who also plays guitars on the record) and engineered by Brad Bell (Spoon, Arcade Fire, The War On Drugs). Tracks feature Chris Konte on bass, Jason Baczynski on drums and percussion, as well as special guests: Tim Regan on keys/synth, Sam Kossler on pedal steel, Leigh Wallenhaupt on strings, Canadian folk trio Sweet Alibi on backing vocals, and Dave Quanbury on guitar and engineering in Canada
1580364000 Live Music The Dirty Rain Revelers La Divina January 30, 2020 January 30, 2020 6:00 PM 8:00 PM https://www.thedirtyrainrevelers.com/ New Orlean's The Dirty Rain Revelers ...with a blend of Roots-Rock, Americana, and Blues. Enjoy select wines, ice cold beer, dining &gelato! The Dirty Rain Revelers Based in New Orleans, The Dirty Rain Revelers embodies the unified musical collaboration of husband/wife team, Matthew and Melissa DeOrazio, both on guitars and vocals. The couple met on a gig in Austin in October 2005, a post-Katrina love story set to music. Melissa has family roots in TX and grew up in Austin; Matthew was retreating and recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They quickly began performing, recording and touring as Melissa on the Rocks. After a year and a half, Melissa and Matthew joined in marriage in 2007, and moved back to New Orleans. As two independent artists from divergent backgrounds, they felt compelled to merge their styles to create a sound more representative and ultimately more rewarding. After 8 years under the name Sweet Jones, they felt it was time to hit the refresh button again. A variety of reasons went into the decision, between internet visibility, changes in the line-up, and the subtle shifting of sounds over time. In autumn 2016, they changed their name to The Dirty Rain Revelers. To date, they’ve recorded four albums, performed at various festivals, toured annually from the Southwest/East Coast/Midwest/Northwest, built a home recording studio, established their own music publishing company, and performed their own arrangement of the Cole Porter tune, I’ve Got My Eyes on You in the closing scene of NCIS Crescent City Part 1 with Mark Harmon and Scott Bakula. Their song, I've Seen, was featured on NCIS New Orleans (October 11, 2016), where Matthew performed the song instrumentally on the show, with local trumpet player Ian Smith. They appeared for a third time on NCIS: New Orleans (May 15, 2018) as a full band, performing two original songs. (I've Seen and Pick Out Your Own Cloud; both songs are on the Spark album, released October 25th, 2018. Melissa and Matthew are regular volunteers and members at the local community-based/supported radio station, WWOZ, believing in being a part of the grassroots process of supporting music that they and their peers make in Louisiana. They also have their own radio show on local community-based/supported radio station WHIV, (stands for We Honor Independent Voices). Their show, Killin' the Blues with Los DeOrazios, airs Wednesday nights, 7-8pmCST. Stream online here. They enjoy playing festivals, markets and clubs, as well as performing at alternative venues and benefits. The Dirty Rain Revelers are available to perform as a duo, or as a full band, adding bass/keys/strings and drums depending on the venue/occasion. INDIVIDUAL BIOS: Matthew is a proficient and prolific musician who has been playing guitar and performing the majority of his life. He grew up along the east coast, mainly in DC and NYC, with short stints in Miami and Philadelphia. He fell in love with New Orleans in 2002 during a trip to Jazz Fest, and decided immediately that this was the home his soul had been longing for. Under the name El DeOrazio, his “modern electric blues” combine new interpretations of familiar songs with his own “spontaneous compositions”, which come to life as improvisational work inspired by the moment. He has worked with many other artists on guitar and drums, both live and in the studio over the years, and truly enjoys every aspect of playing and creating music. His EP El DeOrazio is available on the Music page. Matthew has several 'main' guitars, but enjoys playing locally crafted instruments, including the New Orleans Guitar Company JB14 (Vincent Guidroz, New Orleans, LA) and the Melancon Cajun Gentleman (Gerard Melancon, Thibodaux, LA) Melissa is a native Texan singer/songwriter who infuses her effervescent energy into her songwriting and performing. She is a writer, poet, and photographer, inspired by the world on a daily basis. She was very active in the Austin music community for several years (1999-2007), organizing music showcases and performing both solo-style and with various band incarnations, including Melissa on the Rocks, where Matthew & Melissa first began playing together in late 2005. Melissa and Matthew recorded a full-length album, called M.O.T.R, in 2007, which is available only for download, on the Music page. Their music ultimately expresses heart and soul. They are grateful to be able to share this positive inspiration in the world and grateful for your support and enjoyment as well.

1580968800 Live Music Barry Hebert La Divina February 6, 2020 February 6, 2020 6:00 PM 8:00 PM La Divina is honored to host Thursday night LIVE MUSIC with Barry Hebert. Enjoy live original music with select wines, ice cold beer, delicious dining and gelato! Arrive early! Tickets are not needed, this is a walk up event and seats are not reserved. http://www.barryhebertmusic.com/index When a songwriter can tell a good story and create vivid pictures in your mind with his lyrics, then you know there is something remarkable going on. Such is the case with singer-songwriter, Barry Hebert. The youngest of four children in a family that loved music, Barry Hebert grew up listening to singer-songwriters at an early age. He is especially fond of artists like James Taylor, Jim Croce, Jimmy Buffet, the Eagles, as well as the old country masters such as Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Hank Williams. While in pursuing a degree in Geology in the early 1980's he became one of the original members of a country group called the Basin Brothers Band, performing in and around his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana. As the band's popularity grew, they began to venture out from Louisiana and started playing the Texas dancehall circuit. During that time, Barry began writing songs with several of them making their way into the Band's setlist. Eventually, the Basin Brothers returned to their Louisiana roots and they began concentrating on Cajun music. This happened at a time when Cajun music was just beginning to spread beyond Louisiana’s borders. The Basin Brothers Band began touring across the United States and Canada playing venues such as the Greek Theater in Hollywood. The group's first album release on the Flying Fish Label was nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Traditional Folk Recording" category. Barry Hebert has been professionally involved with music for a long time. In the early years he wasn’t particularly interested in singing, preferring to stand aside and play, but sometime around 1982 he became involved with a country group called the Basin Brothers Band, performing in and around South Louisiana. The group enjoyed some real success, playing the Texas dancehall circuit and eventually touring nationally. During the last few years, however, Barry has focused more on his own songs. Worn Wooden Floors is a delightful CD and the start of something good. I hope you will take the time to really listen to it.

Enjoy live original music with select wines, ice cold beer, delicious dining and gelato. Daniel Lee Comeaux is a musical creative who has put in his time honing his performing craft, having played in all 48 continental states and beyond. Daniel has produced eight of his own albums and is about to release his ninth, "Will for Want." Daniel won the WAMA 'songwriter of the year' award, along with the gold award for the rock category of the SAW awards, and the prestigious eddie's attic shootout in atlanta. Daniel has scored for and sang alongside a complete symphony orchestra, the TFO in Branson, and played with accompanying string quartet and chamber pop settings as well as more traditional band formats as well, although he is equally comfortable playing solo and acoustic. The allure of the music to audiences over the years has been attributed to Daniel's sweeping vocal range, his poetic lyricism (having also released a book of poetry) and striking, modal, innovative musical structures. Daniel's output and work has gained a loyal following especially up the east coast, along which he has resided and visited much over the last decade https://danielboonelight.bandcamp.com/
