Just came across these two clips of my favorite band (BeauSoleil) playing at my favorite record store, the Louisiana Music Factory. They are stellar as always. Michael Doucet and his mates are an American musical treasure. Sample a few songs off the Lafayette, Louisiana Cajun band’s latest fine offering Alligator Purse. By the way, if you’re ever in New Orleans, you really need to visit this record shop. It’s the place to find that needle in the haystack for Cajun, jazz and blues lovers. Plus, you may even get a free bottle of Abita, as they often are doing beer promotions there.
