Good Friday Bach Lunch with The Howdies

by Dege Legg

Bach Lunch does Good Friday.  Bach Lunch Spring continues this Friday, April 2 with family in for the Easter weekend and kids out of school on Easter break. This is a great way to spend your lunch hour. This Friday catch hillbilly chicken scratchers The Howdies at Parc Sans Souci.

The Howdies specialize in the sounds of folk, Komodo ragtime, speedboat blues, caucasoid swing, Presbyterian rockabilly, and greaseball honky tonk. The band includes a lot of cool dudes: Stuart Keller on harmonica, kazoo and vocals, Austin Keller on percussion, Julian Primeaux on guitar and vocals and Christopher Slim on bass. Good guys.

Bach Lunch, ongoing for 22 years now, is the popular free lunch hour series featuring different musicians performing from noon to 1 p.m. Lunches are available for purchase from local restaurants on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 11:15 a.m. The concerts are held in downtown Lafayette at Parc Sans Souci at the corner of Polk, Congress and Vermilion streets.  Proceeds go to the support of the Lafayette Science Museum.
