Le Fete de Marquette prt 1

2008 La Fête de Marquette: Thursday – Sunday, July 10th – 13th and at this years new location, the event was filled with fantastic music acts from around the globe. La Fête de Marquette coincides with Bastille Day, the French national holiday. The celebration will provide many opportunities to become immersed in French culture with food, arts, crafts and – especially – music. The event will host musicians from the French-speaking world including performers from West Africa, Cambodia, Quebec and France throughout the weekend and performers with New Orleans/Cajun/Zydeco roots primarily on Sunday. Event organizers anticipate attracting thousands to this one of a kind, free-to-all community event. There was so much happening and I was able to see ALL the acts I truly wanted to check out or re-visit. On Friday I got to witness Les Breastfeeders, a band I have featured on the show numerous times. This is a “DO NOT MISS” show if you are ready for some serious rock and roll Montreal style. This band is steaming hot and will make you butter your bread and ROCK your Roll. You’ll be in store for the sweaty jumps and the wailing chords and HI-boots will be-a-shakin’, when you spend a little time with Les Breastfeeders. I was pumped up for the entire night after that show, and consider my socks knocked off! I also caught the quintessential New Orleans party band, The Iguanas, and how could you ever go wrong with that!!!
