Lafayette, LA – The Daiquiri Queens will bring their unique mix of traditional Cajun and honky-tonk music to the Downtown Alive! digital stage this Friday, October 23rd at 6 pm. Presented by Evangeline Maid and streamed online from Acadiana Center for the Arts, viewers can watch the virtual performances by tuning in to the Downtown Alive! Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/downtownaliveLFT. Hailing from both the Lafayette area and New Orleans, this female-fronted group brings influences ranging from early-era Cajun standards sung in Louisiana French to today’s Cajun hits. “Along with our presenting sponsor, Evangeline Maid, we are extremely excited to welcome the Daiquiri Queens to Downtown Alive!,” said Anita Begnaud, CEO of Downtown Alive! organizer Downtown Lafayette Unlimited. “A huge part of our programming is staying true to the culture and roots of our area. With their Cajun-French influenced music, we think the Daiquiri Queens will be singing right to the heart of Acadiana!” Downtown Alive! has provided family-friendly entertainment, along with a dash of culture, for nearly 40 years. Although 2020’s Spring and Fall seasons look different from those in the past, organizers are looking on the bright side of things and excited to support local musicians and provide family-friendly entertainment to the community. The rest of this DTA! season will include a who's who of Acadiana musicians with the Blue Monday Allstars; and a season wrap-up featuring Sunset’s own Curley Taylor and Zydeco
