Gosh, it seems like recently I have been blessed to have the opportunity to listen to some good music. Last week it was Chicago. And then last night I went with a friend to Crockett, Texas to the Camp Street Cafe and Store and heard the Lost Bayou Ramblers. This is cajun music, also known as zydeco. I have heard this kind of music in movies, but I have not heard it in person. The setting is an old building in the small town of Crockett. It has an old country store sort of feeling. There is no dancing nor smoking. You are welcome to bring in your beer or wine, or you can purchase soft drinks or water. The only food sold is homemade cookies, candy bars, and popcorn. Of course you are not there long. The show was from 8:00 until 10:00.
The Lost Bayou Ramblers are a youthful group of musicians. There were four energetic guys with one singing and playing the fiddle, another playing the accordian or the lap steel, another the drums, and another the upright bass. It was a fun time listening to this cajun music. There were people of all ages- older, middle age, and children.
If you are near Crockett which is located in deep east Texas about 90 miles from College Station, check them out. They have entertainment every Saturday night, and then also some other nights of the week. We had a fun evening, and I hope to go again.
