Vermilionville will host “Gateway to the Grammys”, a Grammy send-off fundraising party for three local bands who will soon be making their way to Los Angeles for “Music’s Biggest Night.” 

Barry Ancelet & Sam Broussard, Joshua Caffery and Joel Savoy and Roddie Romero & the Hub City All-Stars are set to play Vermilionville’s Performance Center on Thursday, January 12th from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The evening will be emceed by KRVS 88.7 FM’s “Zydeco Stomp” host, Herman Fuselier.

Nearly two weeks ago, the Recording Academy announced its nominations for the 59th annual Grammy awards. Three Acadiana groups were nominated for the Best Regional Roots Album Grammy, along with Hawaiian musician Kalani Pe’a and Native American group Northern Cree. 

Barry Ancelet & Sam Broussard, a first-time Grammy nominee as a duo (Broussard has previously been nominated with Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys) for their album “Broken Promised Land,” will be sharing Vermilionville’s stage on the 12th with Joshua Caffery and (10-time Grammy nominee) Joel Savoy, nominated for “I Wanna Sing Right: Rediscovering Lomax in Evangeline Country” and Roddie Romero & the Hub City All-Stars, nominated for “Gulfstream” (their first album in 10 years since their 2007 Grammy nominated album “La Louisianne Sessions”).


Regional public radio facility KRVS 88.7 FM, housed on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, will do a special live broadcast of the event from Vermilionville’s site. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and food and beverages will be available for purchase. Cost is $15 per person, and six VIP tables at $250 (bottle service and appetizers included) are available as well.
