The first time I saw Acadiana's legendary band, Atchafalaya perform live was in the early eighties, at the Lafayette Municipal Auditorium, now the Heymann Center. They were opening for LeRoux, whose "Nobody Said It Was Easy" was on the national charts. After all these years, the guys still know how how to bring life to a party. Atchafalaya takes the stage at Rhythms on the River this Thursday (Oct. 5th) in the River Ranch Town Square. The weather's going to be great, so come on out & pass a good time! The music starts at 5:30. Admission to "Rhythms'' is free. All ages are welcome. Pets & ice chests aren't.
