Charles Thibodeaux & the Austin Cajun Aces @3:15pm – $5 cover! 21+ only.
Charles Thibodeaux formed a cajun band in March of 2004 while playing for a group of Mardi Gras enthusiasts. They manage to keep the dance floors full while keeping a busy schedule playing in and around Austin.
The Austin Cajun Aces has that authentic Cajun sound—sounds of that tough life of the farms and bayous yet that upbeat and happy sound that represents the The Joy of Life –Les Joire de Vi.orgvre. Their repertoire consists of many of the older songs of Iry LeJeune, Nathan Abshire, Dewey Balfa, Lawrence Walker, Amadee Ardoin, Canray Fontenot, Andrew Cormier and many other Cajun and Creole Masters. You are sure to “Pass a Good Time” when you come out and enjoy their music.
The band is made up of the soulful accordion and French vocals of Charles Thibodeaux; master fiddling and French vocals of Peter Schwarz, (formerly of Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys), Steve Doerr on rhythm guitar (lead man of Leroi Bros. band) and Dale Dougay on drums.
