The band would like to humbly request a donation to Cité des Arts at any time before, during, or after either performance via www.citedesarts.org/sponsors, or the Cité des Arts GoFundMe page, http://gf.me/u/zgpc4m. The world desperately needs art and artists now to help keep us connected and engaged and asking questions, but also to help us move out beyond the bubble of noise that surrounds our everyday lives. Cité des Arts is a true Lafayette institution that has consistently provided an outlet for artists to be artists and they need and deserve our support.
The band Blurb was born, like many other creative endeavors, out of the need to feed the mind and soul during the very dark and isolated beginnings of the Covid pandemic. Driven by the desire for connection both human and musical, drummer/composer Danny Devillier assembled a group of close friends and musical comrades to help bring to life the scraps - blurbs - of material lying unfinished in folders, hard drives, voice memos, memories, etc. The result is an eclectic and colorful mix of original material that might be as challenging to listen to as it is to play.
