Bach Lunch kicks off its 2011 spring series on March 18. There’s no better way to welcome spring than by enjoying your lunch in Parc Sans Souci while listening to some great live music. Bach Lunch is Lafayette’s only free lunchtime concert series. This spring, Fridays will be spiced up with the introduction of new bands and restaurants to the Bach Lunch lineup. This season will introduce jazz and blues bands from New Orleans, funk from members of George Porter Jr., and local Grammy winning Cajun music. Bach Lunch will also add some tropical flair to Festival International by presenting the Caribbean sensation Le Grand Baton from Guadeloupe.
Bach Lunch takes place every Friday in Parc Sans Souci, during lunch hours, between March 18 and April 29.
