Jazz musician and composer Billy Childs is set to perform at the Acadiana Center for the Arts on Tuesday evening. Childs has performed through the years with an impressive list of artists, including Sting, Wynton Marsalis, and Chick Corea. 

Zydeco accordionist Jeffery Broussard will host a dance at Artmosphere on Friday evening with his band, Creole Cowboys.

An Elton John tribute will take place at The Grouse Room Saturday night. Indie rockers Scenic World and local songwriter Grand Nathaniel will be at Blue Moon that same evening. 

Geno Delafose and his Zydeco band, French Rockin’ Boogie, will close out the weekend in Lafayette with a late afternoon fais do do at Rock n’ Bowl. 

This week’s playlist will feature a mix of jazz, zydeco, and indie rock from the artists performing in the Hub City this week. You’ll hear original compositions from Billy Childs, upbeat Creole two-steps from Jeffery Broussard and Geno Delafose, and psychedelic pop from Scenic World. Also in the mix are a few of my favorite Elton John tunes and some recent music from Grand Nathaniel.
