Lee Benoit - Tuesday Show 

When: Tue., Sept. 19, 8-11 p.m. 2017
Price: $15 Day of Show / $12 Advance / $12 Students
Award-winning Louisiana Cajun bandleader Lee Benoit makes his Ashkenaz debut: the first was Saturday, and he returns tonight for our regular Tuesday Cajun/zydeco dance night. Inducted into the Cajun Music Hall of Fame in 2014, Benoit has racked up awards for his fresh approach to the music he grew up on and the Cajun culture he proudly presents. He is part of a younger generation of Cajun musicians who were influenced by Wayne Toups to Steve Riley and rocker John Fogerty. The result is high-spirited dance music sung in French and English that mixes Benoit’s original tunes with traditional favorites.
