The Lieutenant Governor's Grammy Gala, originally set for Feb. 25 at the Acadiana Center for the Arts has been postponed until June 8.
The program was to feature Grammy-nominated and Grammy Award winners and it still will when it comes to the ACA's James Devin Moncus Theater in June.
Scheduled to perform are nominees and the winner in the Best Regional Roots Album category in the 54th annual event held last Sunday in L.A.
And that would include the winner of said category, The Rebirth Brass Band, as well as nominees Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, and C.J. Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band.
Also scheduled for the summertime show are Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, Joel and Anne Savoy, the Magnolia Sisters, CC Adcock and others. Carrier, by the way, brought home the Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album Grammy last year, which is also the last year of the category before it became what it is today.
Tickets are $75 and are all-inclusive; VIP tables available. Tickets can be purchased online in advance at AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org, by visiting the box office at 101 W. Vermilion St. or by calling (337) 233-7060.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
