In our last few days at Betty’s RV Park we made one last visit to Lafayette, La., and we were able go to a few music gigs and several more of Betty’s happy hours. The first music venue was one we had always wanted to go to but never did. On some Saturday mornings the Cafe de Musee in Kaplan LA hosts a Cajun Music event and on our last Saturday they happened to be hosting three people we knew. The main attraction was Judy Bailey, nominated for three Grammy Awards, and the band she put together included our friends Dan (staying at Betty’s RV Park) and local musician Dave, a lead guitarist, who we got to know from Touchet’s and Erath’s Cajun jams.
As fun as the morning was listening to music we also drove up to Rayne to the Mire Volunteer Fire Department Annual BBQ Fundraiser where Geno Delafose and the French Rockin Boogie Band were playing. We absolutely love listening to this very talented Zydeco band and were sure happy we found a way to see him before leaving Betty’s.
