Listen to Krewe de la Rue and you’ll hear their energetic, heartfelt, punchy dance hall mix of Cajun and Creole music. Lead by Roger Weiss on fiddle, Laren Droll on accordion, Buffy Lewis on guitar and vocals, and Maggie McManus on triangle; The Krewe captures and preserves the music played at festivals, dance halls, and clubs in Southwest Louisiana. Frequent trips south, visiting and forming friendships with musicians and singers young and old, have allowed band members to absorb the essence of the music and culture.
“This is some free-wheelin’, not over rehearsed, rough-edged throw down with its tail tied tight in Lafayette; my kind of gumbo.” –Cafe Guide
