Here is the line up for 2013:

For this unique concert kicking off the series, the Baton Rouge Symphony will feature a patriotic tribute and American classics. Their set list includes everything from Duke Ellington to songs from famous films and Broadway shows. This is the BR Symphony’s first ever Live After Five concert!
September 13th | Rockin Doopsie
This zydeco legend is sure to put on one seriously fun show. Here is what the American Press had to say about him, “He’s boogied with James Brown, packed the House of Blues, played at the White House, and traveled to more cities than a Greyhound. Critics hail him as one of zydeco’s most cherished symbols and a party seems to break out whenever and wherever he and his band show up.” I’d say that pretty much sums up just how great this Rockin Doopsie show is sure to be.
September 20th | MoJEAUX
They call themselves “Louisiana’s most diverse and energetic party experience.” I have to agree with them.MoJEAUX will have you up and dancing to your favorite oldies or top 40 in no time. Get your weekend started off right with this show!
