Treat yourself to a taste from the Cajun music melting pot with the Lost Bayou Ramblers. This Grammy-winning band stirs the unique energy of Louisiana’s music and culture in with the modern sounds and rhythms of punk and psychedelia, serving up a musical gumbo sure to please all palettes. With a recent feature on Jack White’s American Epic documentary, as well as opening spots on tour with Arcade Fire and the Violent Femmes, Lost Bayou Ramblers effortlessly straddles the lines between traditional and progressive … while putting on a foot-stomping, two-stepping, partner-twirling good time of a live show every time they hit the stage.

“The Grammy-winning group plays a revved-up version of Cajun music, shot through with punk energy and psychedelic fuzz.”
— David Dye, World Café

There is no RSVP to get on the shuttle, it will be there when you arrive (in the parking lot side of the station). If it’s not there, it’s just making the loop and should be back within 5–10 minutes. The shuttle will start running 2.5 hours before the concert, and 30 minutes after the concert ends.

Learn More About Lost Bayou Ramblers

The Grammy Award-winning Lost Bayou Ramblers’ evolution as a perversely progressive band, rooted in Cajun traditions, continues to excite, challenge, and redefine both genre expectations as well as cultural preconceptions. The group was founded in 1999 by brothers Andre and Louis Michot, and the last five years have brought LBR a feature on Jack White’s American Epic, score contributions to the Oscar-nominated film Beasts of the Southern Wild, a Grammy Award for their latest album Kalenda, and tours with both Arcade Fire and the Violent Femmes. Lost Bayou Ramblers stands at the crosscurrents of Louisiana culture by inhabiting the gray area between Cajun and Creole, convention and innovation, mystery and a revelation, experimenting and growing the show to what it’s become today: an eclectic mix of modern sounds and rhythms with ancient Cajun melodies and lyrics.  According to World Café, “The Grammy-winning group plays a revved-up version of Cajun music, shot through with punk energy and psychedelic fuzz.” To learn more about Lost Bayou Ramblers, please visit their website.
