Bayou Blowout in Santee


The Bayou Brothers Cook Up a Little Cajun in Santee

The Bayou Brothers Cook Up a Little Cajun in Santee

Last Thursday, August 21, the weekly Summer Concert featured the Bayou Brothers, a Zydeco band that sounds straight out of “N’awlins.”

This was the next-to-last concert of the summer, and people were more than ready to dance the night away.  There was a whole lotta shakin’ going on down there with all that “musical gumbo” the group dished up.  With a rocking mix of Zydeco, blues, R&B, and more, the band had something for just about every taste.  Many of the members have been playing professionally for decades, and they bring a load of talent and experience to the stage.  To learn more about the band, check out the Bayou Brothers website.

The Summer Concert Series has been a great draw for the Trolley Center, as well as a wonderful way for Santee residents to get out, mingle, have some fun, and meet new and old friends.  All of the sponsors of the Series deserve a round of applause for helping to bring the great music to the community.  I also want to give a “shout out” to the young women who have been there to welcome everyone and just generally add a little class to the evenings…
