Just finished promoting the 15th Annual Long Beach Crawfish Festival online. Check it out!

This isn’t a media alert I wrote, nor an event I’m producing, but this is something I promoted online. Doesn’t it sound fun (lots of great Cajun/Zydeco music to dance to) and delicious too? Check it out!

For August 2nd, 3rd, 2008


The 15th Annual Long Beach Crawfish Festival serves mouth-watering Cajun Crawfish dinners prepared to perfection by chefs from Bristol Farms in the world’s largest crawfish steamer. Crawfish feasts include succulent red baby potatoes, buttery corn on the cob and a special dipping sauce.


The Recording Academy added a Cajun and Zydeco category for the first time ever for the 2008 Grammy Awards. Three of the Grammy nominees from this new musical category will be playing on the Main Stage on Sunday August 3rd. These “Grammy Night” acts are: GENO DELAFOSE & French Rockin’ Boogie, LISA HALEY & The Zydecats, and Roddie Romero and the Hub City All-Stars. Also playing on Sunday will be Eddie Baytos & The Nervis Bros. introducing the “Cajun Quadrille” dance.
Acts on the bill for Saturday August 2nd are: Lula Almeida and Afro Brazil, Bonne Musique Zydeco, Pamela Clay & Catahoula, and the 2nd Line Saviors featuring Eddie Baytos.
