Louisiana Musicians Getting a Little Help From Friends in San Diego

Two local bayou-tied organizations are raising relief funds for Louisiana musicians affected by recent flooding.

Gator By The Bay, the largest Louisiana-themed music and food festival in San Diego, and The Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego (BTSC), a non-profit that sponsors Cajun and zydeco dance events, are hosting a benefit concert on Wednesday at Tio Leo’s Mexican Restaurant in Morena.

Admission is $10 and all proceeds will go towards the Louisiana Musicians' Flood Relief Fund.

The event goes from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. and features a Louisiana-inspired dance lesson and live sets by seven local zydeco, blues and swing bands. Here's a look at the schedule:

6:00 p.m. - Dance Lesson with Greg Benusa

6:30 p.m. - Naked I

7:00 p.m. - Euphoria Brass Band

7:40 p.m. - The Bayou Brothers

9:00 p.m. - Theo & The Zydeco Patrol

Concertgoers will have a chance at winning a limited-edition, signed Gator By The Bay poster through a silent auction, and random drawings for CD’s, Gator By The Bay t-shirts and restaurant gift cards will take place throughout the night.
