Downtown Alive! (DTA!) welcomes Rockin' Dopsie, Jr. & the Zydeco Twisters PLUS Remembering David Egan at Parc Sans Souci, on March 23rd.
Rockin' Dopsie Jr. (pronounced Doopsie) is considered the ultimate entertainer bringing a high energy stage show that has led to him being called the James Brown of Zydeco, but that's not all - throw in some New Orleans Funkiness with a Gumbo of Soul, R N B and the Dopsie brothers Anthony on accordian and Tiger on drums plus the top notch musicianship of The Zydeco Twisters and you have the best high energy show around.
A new generation of Lafayette players honors the legacy of master songwriter David Egan. Featuring a diverse line-up of musicians mentored by David’s craft, warmth, and generosity, Dreamer finds enduring meaning in his work through classics reimagined, reinterpreted and revered. With performances by Kristin Diable, Rex Moroux, Julie Williams, Caleb Elliott, Blayze Viator, Christiaan Mader, Roger Kash and Bruce MacDonald backed by Chris Stafford, Philippe Billeaudeaux, Jim Kolacek and Dave Trainer.
The party starts at 5 p.m. as DTA! hosts Lafayette’s Happiest Hour. This week’s DTA! Happiest Hour is hosted by Legend's Downtown from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m and their signature frozen margarita's. The Downtown Alive! “Official After Party” kicks off at Legend's immediately following DTA!.
We continue the new addition of the DTA! Manger food scene where hungry concertgoers can expect another lineup of local favorites. This week features a variety of food options including Scratch Farm Kitchen and C'est Bon Manger.
