Bringing foot stomping’ Cajun music to the world one dance hall at a time… Jesse Lege is the Real Deal.
For over 40 years, Lege has been bringing traditional Cajun dance hall music from the dusty back roads of southwest Louisiana, coast to coast and around the world, playing everywhere from local neighborhood dance halls to the largest international festivals.
Today, Lege is one of the most-admired Cajun accordionists and vocalists from Southwest Louisiana, and has garnered numerous Cajun French Music Association awards, known as the “Cajun Grammys.” They include Traditional Band of the Year, Accordion Player of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Band of the Year, and… for “Memoires Dans Mon Coeur”… he won Song of the Year.
Jesse Lege & Bayou Brew brings you deep into Cajun tradition, with accordion (Jesse), fiddle (Darren Wallace), guitar (Erica Weiss) and bass (Evelyn Schneider), and songs that melt your heart too. For dancers and listeners alike, a Jesse Lege & Bayou Brew event is always like a party, filled with old and new friends!
