There probably will never be a more welcomed new year in our lifetime than 2021. Live music is often a big part of closing out the holiday season, and there are options to enjoy some local sounds in person, or virtually this New Year’s Eve.

Rock n’ Bowl de Lafayette has been consistent with producing high quality streaming concerts throughout the pandemic. DG and the Freetown Sound will provide the end of year soundtrack at the downtown entertainment complex this Thursday evening. Beloved local accordionist and singer Wayne Toups will kick 2021 on the same stage for a New Year’s Day concert. These shows are also open to the public but with restrictions due to COVID.

For the last playlist of the year I’ll be featuring Wayne a Toups as well as Dustin Gaspard and his Freetown Sound. You’ll hear the latest from both artists along with tracks from the past. Also in the mix is music by singer/songwriter Reece Sullivan, jazz singer Linnzi Zoarski, and a few lagniappe tunes by Beausoleil, Keith Frank, and Lil Nathan & the Zydeco Big Timers.
