I remember seeing Roddie Romero perform at Festival International de Louisiane when he was about 15.

One of my co-workers asked if he was going to be at the Sunday night Festival Jam. His reply, "I got school in the morning!"  A little time has passed. Roddie's gone on to become one of Acadiana's longtime favorites. He's been nominated for a Grammy, and recently opened for Lionel Richie & Jimmy Buffett. Friday night, we get to see him perform for free when he takes the stage in Parc International for Downtown Alive. I'll have the pleasure of co-hosting the event. Concession sales open at 5:30 The music starts at 6:00. Admission is free. All ages are welcome. See you there!
