Morganza’s newly restored Cedar Saloon has been experiencing much success, most recently with Travis Matte and the Zydeco Kingpins in February. Fans packed the bar and danced the night away while the cajun sounds of zydeco music filled the night. While the music flowed, the dance floor was alive with young and old. The success of The Cedar Saloon has been great for the community. With upcoming events such as weekly pool tournaments, karaoke and live music, The Cedar Saloon is sure to become a favorite spot of community locals as well as a nice place for visitors to stop by.
Top notch entertainment is what you will come to expect at The Cedar Saloon. South Louisiana favorite Travis Matte and the Kingpins performed February 8th, while Louisiana legend Floyd Brown will entertain on Saturday, February 29th.
On Saturday, February 29th, Louisiana legend Floyd Brown will be performing at the saloon. Floyd became a crucial part of the South Louisiana music scene due to his powerful voice and songwriting abilities. He hails from Baton Rouge and is a major force in Swamp Pop Music. Floyd has recorded for both major and independent labels. He has appeared nationally on Country Music Television and has also performed at The Grand Ole Opry. The Cedar Saloon is looking forward to welcoming this soulful Louisiana singer that will take you back in time and keep you dancing all night long. Tickets are $15 but advance discounted tickets are available at the saloon or on their website TheCedarSaloon.com.
The Cedar Saloon will be hosting a “Cook of the Month'' contest beginning this month. Contestants will sign up to cook a Thursday night meal that patrons will judge. Contestants will want to invite family, friends, coworkers and even strangers to come eat and cast votes. The cook with the highest rankings will win a $100 bar tab. You can call the saloon to sign up: 225-618-6434.
Another exciting event that has been planned is a Mother’s Day Swamp Pop Bash. The day will be filled with live music as several bands take the stage including Will Cooper & Southern Groove, Kenny Fife & the Back Trac Band, and LaRouge, featuring Christopher John of the Boogie Kings. There will be several contests that moms will have a chance to win. Tickets the day of the event are $15 but advance discounted tickets can be found at the saloon or on their website. So come out and treat mom to a turn around the newly renovated dance floor, enjoy food, drinks and live music. And maybe Mom will walk away with a cool prize, well besides her little bundles of delight.
