James Hunter Six
Gorgeous fall weather will no doubt aid the cause the Downtown Alive! and the Acadiana Center for the arts join forces to raise funds for artists and arts organizations affected by the August floods. They’re calling it “After the Flood: Artists Helping Artists,” and it’s a special edition of DTA! that will feature London, England’s The James Hunter Six and a pair of local faves: Lafayette’s own The Revelers and Terry & The Zydeco Bad Boys.

This special DTA! event is from 5-11 p.m. today, Friday, at Parc International. Attendees are encouraged to donate $10; 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to individuals and organizations affected by the floods through lost property, rehearsal venues, art supplies, etc.

More on the bands, from the press release:

The James Hunter Six have been wowing American audiences for ten years since Englishman James Hunter burst onto the scene with his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk, topping the Billboard Blues chart, earning a Grammy-nomination and attracting universal acclaim from critics and fans. Hunter’s reputation is as a soul powerhouse and is back with his fourth album, Hold On!

The Revelers are a born and bred local, six-member group composed of founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and The Pine Leaf Boys, two of the groups unquestionably at the vanguard of the Louisiana cultural renaissance. Simply put, The Revelers are a Louisiana supergroup.

Terry and the Zydeco Bad Boys were founded in Duson, Louisiana and play a traditional style of zydeco with a touch of funk. This high energy zydeco rhythm group will keep you dancing all night with their funky bass.
