*Jazz & Blues Florida Special Request*

Our subscriber list is now over 9,200 individuals. This places JAZZ & BLUES FLORIDA above many national and international publications/media sites.
We THANK YOU for being one.  It will make a major difference for our 
business when we hit the 10,000 mark. Can you please help us by 
sending a request to a like-minded friend to check us out? You 
can feel good about "paying your dues" without it costing 
dime and it will help ensure what we do for you continues 
to grow and improve! It can't hurt - only help!

*Notice of Jazz & Blues Florida policy & procedure change*

We will no longer be providing the free listing service on our main site,  www.JazzBluesFlorida.com . Ten years of this practice has not worked out for us and we can no longer afford the resources required to maintain the service. Listings will continue for clients and featured artists. If it isn't worth the monthly $10 *Premium Listing Service to the clubs or artists, it isn't worth us doing it either. It still baffles us though... where else can you get this kind of focused exposure ( www.JazzBluesFlorida.com/Reports) for that kind of money? 

Take good care, and drop us a line once in awhile to let us know how you are doing AND how we are doing!

Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band April 11 at the Colony Theatre, Miami Beach in Tigertail Performance Series

Cajun music in celebration of the
French spirit of joie de vivre.


The Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band
Saturday, April 11, 2015, 8:30 PM
Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Rd.
Miami Beach, FL 33139
MAP

Tickets at www.Tigertail.org
or by calling (305)434-7091

The Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band continues a Cajun French tradition of Acadian music as genuine as can be found in the 21st century. Marc Savoy (accordion, vocals), wife Ann Savoy (guitar, frequent lead vocals), and Michael Doucet of BeauSoleil (fiddle, vocals) comprise the trio, which has been performing and recording together since 1977. They bring the raw energy of the dancehalls of southwest Louisiana to the stage, peppered with humorous and informative anecdotes about life on the Louisiana prairies.

The instrument Marc Savoy plays in the band is an Acadian accordion of his own manufacture. He has been making accordions since 1960, and builds them in his own shop – the Savoy Music Center, in Eunice, Louisiana.

Savoy-Doucet has recorded five CDs on the Arhoolie label. They have traveled all over the world, appearing in many prestigious venues, including the Newport Folk Festival, the Berlin Jazz Festival, the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes at the Smithsonian Institution, the National Geographic Concert Series and the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, England. The United States Department of State has taken them on numerous tours, featured them in national festivals, and awarded Marc Savoy the National Heritage Fellowship Award – the highest honor in the country for traditional artists. Michael Doucet was awarded a Grammy for his work with his other band, Beausoleil. Ann Savoy was awarded the Botkin Book Award for her definitive book on the history of Cajun music, and she recently appeared as a musician in the film Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.

Although the Savoy Doucet Cajun Band insists upon maintaining a more acoustic approach to Cajun music the band can hold its own amongst Cajun music lovers everywhere. In fact, the band loves seeing how much power and sound they can get out of just three instruments.

Each member of the band can play numerous instruments and they sometimes trade instruments during stage performances. Early French ballads are added to the program to show other historic elements prevalent in early southwest Louisiana. Between the songs, the Cajun French poetry of the songs is often briefly translated by Ann so that the feeling can be better understood. Their repertoire is chosen carefully – popular dancehall tunes interspersed with soulful ballads, fiddle or vocal duets, or blues. The songs show the spectrum of Cajun life from sorrow and lost love to nonsense and the joy of dance.

It should be noted that the correct pronunciation of Savoy-Doucet is that of the French, i.e.: Savoy: Sah-Vwah; Doucet: Doo-Say. In both cases, the accent is on the 2nd of the two syllables.

During the full month of April, FLA-FRA (Florida-France), a Tigertail project in its second year, celebrates art from France, Florida and the Francophone world. FLA-FRA, a community-wide fête of dynamic, robust concerts, films, pop-up performances and other events happens throughout Miami at theaters and unexpected locations. Dispersed throughout the month are daily sunrise meditations, Django Gypsy music, Miami artist-created five-minute Culture Clicks, French Cajun music, Cocteau films, contemporary African dance from the Ivory Coast, chasse au trésor (a treasure hunt) – quixotic, fun, events reflective of Miami and the French spirit of joie de vivre. Most events are free.





Direct support for FLA-FRA comes from: the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge. The Knight Arts Challenge funds the best ideas for bringing Miami together with the arts.; FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance, a program of the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, and FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Andrew W.
