Hey ya'll! While this blog mostly focuses on local handmade artisans, we should not forget local musicians also!!
I had the great pleasure of seeing Marc Broussard again last night, live in concert and it was great! He's a super awesome guy, spent time with the fans and even gave us an impromptu concert when we mentioned that we had always wanted to hear a particular song live! It was awesome and he sat down and played several of the 'secret songs' (the songs at the end of the album not listed in the track list..the ones true fans know!) for us! I did record them but out of respect for his family (his son was playing in the background of the video) I've made them private on YouTube.
Anyways, he's from Lafayette and is a fantastic musician and seems like a great guy! (I invited him to come on Blockhead Radio one day...we'll see!!!LOL) :)
So my long winded, stalkerish point is, if you know of any local musicians who need some air time, please not only refer them to this blog so we can list them, but refer them to Blockhead Radio, where they play only indie music and support indie musicians!
Musicians are very much artisans in their craft and deserve our local support as well!! Our only rule is their material be mostly PG-13! (That is also Blockhead Radio's rule!) :)
So keep on rocking locally guys! Hey, remember when The Imagination Movers were just a local band playing little gigs in the park? Now kids around the world are obsessed with them!
Louisiana has awesome talent and abilities...let's show em!
