Festival International's "Amis du Festival" membership program is like a yearlong ticket to Festival info and events. Held each September, the membership drive kicks off with an all-day event at Blue Moon Saloon. The 2006 Sept. 16 festivities began with kids' activities in the afternoon, including guest artist Ramsey Ayers, who drew pictures of the kids and was quite a trooper out in the heat at eight months pregnant. Fiddler Dave Trainer also came out in an airplane hat to play music for the young 'uns, who also loved Hobgoblin Puppet Theater. Then it was time for the adults to have fun. Nouveau String Band avec Marce Lacouture was the first to take the stage, but the dance floor really heated up with Lil' Nathan & the Zydeco Big Timers with Dennis Paul Williams sitting in. The Richard Revue closed out the show with its usual ecstatic fans. With a new haircut and close shave, that Troy Richard looks and sounds better than ever!
Having recently turned 40, Roy Hollard of men's shop Moseley & Hollard is lookin' pretty good himself. His wife, Dawn, organized a surprise Mexican fiesta-style party at Coyote Blues Sept. 2. Guests Ryan and Allison Hollard, John and Vicky Hollard, Tex and Julie Hebert, Miles Hebert, Steven and Tricia Grissom, Joe and Nell Moseley, Reggie Smith and Billy and Mitra Trahan dined on chips and salsa, tacos, quesadillas and margaritas. But Dawn couldn't forget Roy's favorite cake: dobage from Southside Bakery. Happy Birthday, Roy!
