Lafayette, LA – Cajun music connoisseurs Jourdan Thibodeaux et Les Rôdailleurs will take the Downtown Alive! digital stage this Friday, October 2nd, 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. “We had so much fun with DG & the Freetown Sound last Friday, and are ready to get Acadiana and beyond dancing in their living rooms again! During a difficult year for musicians, we are thankful to our presenting sponsor, Evangeline Maid, for helping us provide a stage for local artists,” said Anita Begnaud, CEO of Downtown Alive! Organizer, Downtown Lafayette Unlimited. “So many of us in South Louisiana share a deep appreciation for our culture and history, and we know Jourdan Thibodeaux et Les Rôdailleurs are ready to spread their love of our Cajun heritage through music!” 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 talent from Lafayette and beyond, including Lake Charles natives Rusty Metoyer and the Zydeco Krush; New Orleanians Daiquiri Queens; 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 Trouble. Downtown Alive! would not be possible without its sponsors’ support, especially Fall 2020 presenting sponsor Evangeline Maid, venue host Acadiana Center for the Arts, videography by Better Boot Productions, and Paul Kieu Photography. Companies and organizations like Lafayette Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Smokefree Music Cities, LUS Fiber, M.I. Brary, Victor Ashy, CGI, Professional Outsource Services, Rock'n'Bowl® de Lafayette, Lowry’s Printing, Element, Potty Girl, Townsquare Media, Delta Media, and Festival International de Louisiana have also come together to produce this season of Downtown Alive! Tune in to the Downtown Alive! Facebook page for your virtual viewing parties every Friday. During the week of Festival Acadien, there will be no DTA! show as we encourage the community to support the festival by tuning in to their fantastic music lineup.
