Re: The Main Squueze

Bill E. Jennings new to cajun music? Where you from? I was born and raised in Jennings and Im 50 years old. I remember riding my bike as a kid to hear the jam sessions every weekend at Purvis Clements barbershop. Blackie Forstier, a pioneer in the music lived down the street from me. For more than 50 years, way more, cajun music has thrived in the Jennings area. The Jeff Davis Parish Fair was and still is as far as I know,the only fair that used cajun music on the carosel. Try telling a Jerry Dugas Jennings is new to cajun music.. Now I'll agree Jennings itself is not as big as Lafayette but Cajun music in Jennings is just as big...my humble opinion only..
