Posts Tagged ‘Rendezvous des Cajuns’

Liberty Theatre, Eunice LA

We spend 5 nights towards the end of our trip at the Red Shoes Campground at Coushatta Casino.  It turns into a sit-by-the-pool vacation, we’re waiting out some severe weather that’s kicking up north of us.  And it gives us the opportunity to go to see a Saturday night performance – Rendez-Vous  Des Cajuns – at the Liberty Theatre in nearby Eunice.  I’ve had this on my triple star want-to-do list, and weather made it possible.

This picture isn’t of the band that was there  (April 16, 2011)  – I snagged it  from a generous Flickr sharer.We saw Hubert Maitre and the Triangle Aces, with a guest accordionist from Texas who was awesome.  And who had to compete with 10 year old Bubba Hebert, whose musical career  definitely bears watching.  We loved the whole experience, the classic theatre, the music, the people – including the mayor, Claud “Rusty” Moody , who came to visit with us, and introduced us to other interesting locals.  It was pretty much Norman Rockwell, southern style. Best music and most fun we’ve had, in Cajun territory.

Before the show, we’d visited the museum next door – a food demonstration was in progress. The sample of crawfish etouffee was so delicious, we search out the restaurant afterwards.  So we had dinner at Ronnie’s Cajun Cafe.  Delicious!
