Join The Movement

Andrew Davis, Cafe Au Lait’s guitarist, has been a music educator for the better part of 4 years. Baton Rouge Music Studios has supported and encouraged his efforts to get kids fired up about music! This campaign is intended to raise the funds necessary for Baton Rouge Music Studios to relocate and fund the build out of a larger facility that will house multiple lesson rooms, a professional recording studio with two sound controlled booths, AND a performance venue! Securing this space will get us one step closer to refining our curriculum and business systems into an educational package we believe could be franchised to music academes across the nation.

Cafe Au Lait will provide music entertainment during the intermission 8:30 -9p feature Jazz/Soul Vocalist Christien Bold

The Black Arts Film Festival to be held at the LSU Digital Media Center on April 24, 2014 at 6pm. The Black Arts Film Festival is an event put on by the Black Artist Initiative at Louisiana State University that showcases several short films and documentaries by directors and videographers from all over Louisiana. There will be several genres ranging from comedy to documentary. The purpose of this event is to highlight and showcase local cultural talent throughout LSU and the Louisiana area in the form of film and media.

We want to capture the essence and importance of diversity in film, creativity, and culture here at LSU. The event will include a red carpet section capturing formal wear, and a viewing of each film in the DMC theater.

We welcome you to attend and be apart of this experience.

Funk Revival Party

Funk Music Revival - Art, Music, Food

Since we were all planning on getting groovy together this weekend, why not have a big ass party and keep the funk alive?

The Library At Northgate is allowing us to use their facilities so we can have an all-day, outdoor concert the Saturday of the Campout (April 5th). Big thanks to those guys for helping out with such short notice.

The concert will take place outside The Library on Chimes St. from 2-11pm. We’ll have tables outside along the brick wall where artists can display their work, a food truck so y’all can grub down without going anywhere, drinks inside at the bar, and the main attraction- a killer selection of bands from the Campout line-up. This is an outside ordeal, so enter through the gate, not through the bar!

The AMAZING musicians involved are:
Moonsugar
SpeakEasy
Onion Loaf
Cafe Au Lait
Captain Green
(and more!)

This is beyond happening. All we need is you to show up and help keep the spirit of the Campout Alive.

*There will be a small cover at the door. Still waiting on the last band to confirm before we announce anything solid, but it will be less than $10.
*This event is happening rain or shine! We’ve got tents prepared for the equipment if necessary, and the artists are welcome to set up inside or under the patio in case of rain.

(as always, hoopers welcome!)

    Band Bio’s-

    SpeakEasy: At a time when repression was rampant the Speakeasies gave way to freedom and self-expression through music and dance. We are the embodiment of that spirit. We are SpeakEasy. Influenced by the culture and the community we create feel-good music to bring all people together.
    Join us and experience SpeakEasy music, spread good vibes, and celebrate fun times.

    “Cafe Au Lait is a New Orleans based trio that writes, records, and performs original works with talented vocalist while striving to preserve the rich jazz, blues, and afro-cuban traditions of the port city while honoring our love of Motown, rock and roll, and relentless funk.”

    Among the premiere up and comers from the Southern scene, Luke St. John is one of few who showcases genuine thought provoking content through the genre of hip hop. Harnessing an alchemical blend of etheric wordplay and folk-like storytelling, Luke St. John provides an enriching experience for his listening audience illustrating life experiences as well as universal truths that are relative to all.
