Wednesday April 26th: Brass Mimosa 9pm
What once started as an idea for a blues rock band gradually formed into the funky grooves of Brass Mimosa. Featuring Jack Langlinais on drums, Jaron Marshall on keys, Ethan Mould on alto sax, Alex Camel on bass, Blake Pujol on guitar, Eddie Müller on trombone, and Olatunde Soyombo on baritone sax, Brass Mimosa, like most local bands, comes from humble beginnings. The band started off practicing in their bassist’s living room and graduated to regularly playing at almost every major venue in Lafayette and the surrounding areas. They have also had the pleasure of opening for several national touring acts such as Eyes Lips Eyes, Herman Astro, Snarky Puppy, and Shaun Martin. Having recently finished recording their first album entitled 'Stay Sharp' at the famous Dockside Studios, and playing for the second time at Festival International de Louisiane, Brass Mimosa is on the brink of a new era in funk!

Band Members:
Alex Camel - Bass
Blake Pujol - Guitar
Ethan Mould - Alto Sax
Eddie Müller - Trombone
Olatunde Soyombo - Baritone Sax
Jack Langlinais - Drums
JaRon Marshall – Keys

Thursday April 27th: West King String Band 11pm

Cultivated on the porches and back yards across the train tracks on West King Street in St. Augustine, Florida, West King String Band draws from countless genres of music to create a unique homegrown sound they call 'blues-grass'. The outfit took their manic, upbeat riffs on the road and have embarked on several national tours and recorded multiple EP's. Their first full length album "Achin'" released in August of 2016 captivates the blues-grass sound and features both foot stomping songs full of energy and technique as well as slow bluesy grooves accompanied by lyrics tinged with sadness and humor. You can catch WKSB on the road shaking bones in a town near you.

West King String Band is:
Jack Studer - Guitar
Jesse Harman - Upright Bass
Andrew Fox - Mandolin

Friday April 28th: Michael Juan Nunez and The American Electric11pm
Michael Juan Nunez and The American Electric....what can be said about this band?

Chad Willis on Bass and Backing Vocals, Clint "Chief" Redwing on Drums and Backing Vocals, and MJN on Guitar and Vocals.

Ladies and Gentlemen this is a rock band from deep south Louisiana.

It would be easy to just say that, put it in a nice neat package and be done...but let's consider that each of these guys came up on the music scene as sidemen for a combined list that includes Harry Hypolite, Henry Gray, Sherman Robertson, Lil Buck Senegal, Zachary Richard, Roddie Romero and The Hub City Allstars, Gatemouth Brown, John Mooney, Ms. Carroll Fran, D.L. Menard, Chubby Carrier, Lee Allen Zeno, Dege Legg and The Brethren, C.C. Adcock, David Egan...we could continue but you get the idea.

This is a rock band who's roots run DEEP.

The guys play with conviction that only comes from many, many, many nights throwing down from roadside dives, to the biggest festival stages in the world.
Self proclaimed innovators of a style they have dubbed 'Marsh Rock'...you can hear elements of Zydeco, Cajun, The British Invasion, New Orleans R&B and funk, and of course the blues. From the Delta, to the hills of North Mississippi...to the big Texas guitar sound of Austin icons...with names like Stevie, Jimmy, Derek, Denny.
Heavy grooves, and crying, moaning, screaming guitar (not learned from books or videos, but straight from the source...Sonny Landreth, Lil' Buck Senegal, Harry Hypolite.....) 

Again is there more that can be said?
