On Sunday I got a chance to go down to Festival International de Louisiane in Downtown Lafayette. We started off listening to a couple of African bands.
After checking out these bands, we got some food to eat, and my wife wanted a Snow Cone, so we were headed down Jefferson Street, and we stumbled across Mucca Pazza, a circus-punk marching band from Chicago.
It seems like every year that I go to Festival International, I find one band that really blows me away. A few years ago it was Beat the Donkey. This year it’s Mucca Pazza.
As we were walking to see what this street performance was all about, I noticed that there were a few members of the band that had megaphones attached to a helmet, which really intrigued me. There is a Violinist, an Accordion player, and other instruments that needed to be amplified, and this was their solution.
Here’s my vlog from my day at Festival!
And lastly, here are some other pics that I took around Festival with my Nikon D90.
