Street Music blasts off in Port Royal 

From staff reports 

The fall season of Street Music on Paris Avenue kicked off Saturday, Aug. 6 with Port Royal favorite and Louisiana Music Hall of Fame Dwayne Doopsie and the Zydeco Hell Raisers. 

The band played to a larger-than-usual crown on a near perfect evening. 

Next up on Saturday, Aug. 20 will be Katie Henry. The vocalist and guitarist can handle any type of blues tune. 

Those in attendance will get more blues on Saturday, Sept. 30. That’s when Lurrie Bell will bring his Chicago Blues to Paris Avenue. 

The final show will be held on Saturday, Sept. 17. Backline will mix their brand of modern bluegrass with enough traditionalism to keep the old school fans happy. 

The Street Music stage is set up on Paris Avenue between 9th and 10th streets. Admission to all shows, which begin promptly at 6 p.m., is free. 

Bring your chairs and your dancing shoes.
