The Grammy award winning Lost Bayou Ramblers’ evolution as a perversely progressive band rooted in Cajun traditions continues to excite, challenge, and redefine both genre expectations as well as cultural preconceptions. Founded in 1999 by brothers Andre and Louis Michot, the last 5 years have brought LBR a feature on Jack White’s American Epic, score contributions to the Oscar nominated film Beasts of the Southern Wild, a Grammy award for their latest album "Kalenda" and tours with both Arcade Fire and the Violent Femmes. Lost Bayou Ramblers stands at the crosscurrents of Louisiana culture by inhabiting the gray area between Cajun and Creole, convention and innovation, mystery and a revelation, experimenting and growing the show to what it's become today: an eclectic mix of modern sounds and rhythms with ancient Cajun melodies and lyrics. World Café says “The Grammy-winning group plays a revved-up version of Cajun music, shot through with punk energy and psychedelic fuzz.”
Michot Melody Makers was formed in 2015 by Louis Michot, front man for the Grammy award winning Lost Bayou Ramblers. The band was awarded best Cajun Band of 2018 & 2019 by Gambit’s Big Easy Awards. Their sophomore release, Cosmic Cajuns from Saturn out on Nouveau Electric Records has been described as “swamp psychedelia” and “both danceable and experimental” following the debut release on Sinking City Records, BLOOD MOON, a snapshot of how this electric string band pushes the boundaries of Cajun traditional music. What began as a rotating cast of members, the band now features a dedicated lineup with Mark Bingham on guitar, Bryan Webre on bass, and Kirkland Middleton on drums. The Melody Makers reinvigorate historic compositions and introduce sublime new melodies, all while evoking soundscapes inspired by a time when drums and amps first electrified Cajun music.
