We were surfing through one of our favorite websites BuzzFeed.com today when we came across a list of the 29 Most Austin Things That Ever Happened. That got us to thinking... what were the most Cajun things that ever happened? After some careful deliberation, we think we've got a pretty definitive list.
Wayne Toups has performed all over the world, sharing stages with Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, George Jones, and many other legendary figures. The Grammy winner is venturing into another art form. Wayne has partnered with local artist Tony Bernard to open an art store.
The likes of Jo-El Sonnier, Wayne Toups, Chubby Carrier, Roddie Romero, Charlene Howard and many others showed up at Dockside Studio Today to film a video for the upcoming release of 'Healing Song', a remake of Jo-El's version from several years ago.
A few weeks ago at Dockside Studio in Maurice I had the honor of watching as Grammy award winner Jo-El Sonnier and some of his musician friends laid down tracks to the new updated version of "Healing Song", a song Jo-El wrote and recorded as a solo hit many year ago.
Since it's Throwback Thursday (#TBT), and in preparation for Patty in the Parc 2014, we thought it would be fun to take a trip down Memory Lane with Wayne. You'll be able to catch the 2014 version of Wayne on March 15, 2014 at Parc International in Downtown Lafayette...
UPDATE - May 22, 3:20pm: Officials at Cajun Harley-Davidson have informed us that Bikin' on the Block for tonight has been cancelled.
It's "Bikin' on the Block" May 22 with Grammy Award-winning Wayne Toups and Zydecajun!
