Opening Reception – Cajun Jam at the Blue Moon Saloon
The weekly Cajun jam at the Blue Moon attracts some of the area’s best musicians as well as folks from around the globe. Open to all, the jam allows players of all skill levels to sit in and play Cajun tunes the way they used to be played (comme dans l’vieux temps), all acoustic on the back porch.
De temps en temps (from time to time), we have someone host the jam. On other nights, the sessions evolve depending on the musicians playing. It’s never scripted and never the same, you never know what’s coming next or who might show up.
You don’t have to play to enjoy the jam. Have a drink, dance, just kick back, listen and meet folks from all around the world.
Convention Delegates will be treated to great Cajun and Creole cuisine that has helped Lafayette garner the title of Tastiest Town of the South by Southern Living Magazine and Best Food City in the U.S. by Rand McNally and USA Today.
