Lost Bayou Ramblers
Lost Bayou Ramblers was formed in 1999 by brothers Andre and Louis Michot, performing the roots Cajun music they learned as members of Les Frères Michot, the family band their father and uncles formed in the 80's. The brothers quickly began playing clubs and festivals around Louisiana, and taking the traditional music they were raised with to new levels of rhythmic energy and spontaneity, producing the punk and psychedelic labels given to the band by reviews over the years.
In 2012, with five albums under their belt, including a Grammy nomination for their 2007 release Live a la Blue Moon, the band released its most progressive and sonically experimental record to date, Mammoth Waltz. With the stylings of producer Korey Richey (LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, Givers) and the help of guest artists Gordon Gano, Scarlett Johansson, and Dr. John, Mammoth Waltz was named #2 in the “Top 21 Louisiana albums of the 21st Century” by Times Picayune, and acted as an invitation for all music lovers to tune in to the hypnotic Cajun rhythms Lost Bayou Ramblers have been known for since their inception in 1999.
Lost Bayou Ramblers’ contribution to the score of Beasts of the Southern Wild in 2012 brought them further renown worldwide, and continuing performances with Wordless Music Orchestra and score composers Benh Zeiltin and Dan Romer.
2014 brought LBR the support slot on Arcade Fire’s REFLEKTOR tour. In addition, they made a live appearance on NPR’s World Café; they were rated #1 on “David Dye’s five favorite live music moments in and out of the World Café studio.” They also released Gasa Gasa Live, recorded at New Orleans’ Uptown experimental music venue, one of four shows they played that day in the Crescent City.
In 2017, the band won the Grammy Award for Best Regional Roots Music Album for Kelenda.
Lost Bayou Ramblers have continually integrated new sonic elements to their live performances, always 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 and that’s reflected in the ambitious aesthetic reach of Kalenda. They will be premiering the repertoire from Kalenda live at a string of concert dates around the country, ranging from Seattle to Brooklyn to New Orleans, and all points in between.
AWARD-WINNING FIREWORKS DISPLAY
The Jubilee will be the largest and most elaborate fireworks display in Zachary. Starting at 9:00 pm, the fireworks display has been designed by the same fireworks experts used by the Manship Family and WBRZ for the fireworks display in Downtown Baton Rouge.
