LA 31 plays Music & Market Friday, May 4

    Music and Market in Opelousas continues Friday, May 4 with LA 31. The free outdoor concerts are held at Farmer’s Market Pavilion located on the grounds of Le Vieux Village on Vine & Landry Streets. 
    The event is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., with music beginning at 6 p.m. 
    Made up entirely of family, the LA 31 band hails from St. Landry Parish. They are known for adding their own flavor to favorite hits of the 1970s, '80s, '90s and today. 
    Their music is a roller coaster ride of history, rhythm and blues and zydeco. The band is made up of David Sylvester, Jr. on lead vocals and keyboards; Ronnie Doomes on lead guitar and lead vocals; Eugene Cane on rubboard and lead vocals; Ronald Vedell on accordion; Rodney Doomes on bass guitar and David Sylvester, Sr. on drums. 
    In addition to musical entertainment, Music & Market will spotlight a vegetable and/or agriculture commodity. Cabbage will be available for sale and samples this week. 
    Concert-goers are welcome to bring lawn chairs for seating. Because beverages sales for the concert series go towards and event expenses, ice chests will not be allowed. 
    The remaining spring 2012 lineup features:
  • May 11 -- Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin' Cajuns (Cajun); okra; Courthouse Square
  • May 18 -- Warren Storm, Willie Tee and Cypress (swamp pop); tomatoes; Courthouse Square 
  • May 25 -- Goldman Thibodeaux & the Lawtell Playboys (Creole); squash 
    This event is presented by City of Opelousas Tourism with support from St. Landry Homestead, Delta Media, Acadiana Council for the Arts (ACA), LA Division of the Arts, Union Pacific Railroad, Delta Media Corporation, CenterPoint Energy, Louisiana Lottery, Shop Rite, IESI, American Bank, Bodemuller the Printer and Cleco.
