has been together since April of 2012. This five-member band consists of an array of talented musicians. La Recolte is traditional and highly influenced by the South Louisiana dance halls of the mid-1900's. Belting out waltzes of relationships gone bad as well as driving two-steps that will get you pumping. La Recolte is sure to get you on the dance floor for a night of Cajun fun. The band was formed when Shane and Chris discovered each other's passion for Cajun music. A connection was made and the journey to form the band began.
The name of the band, "La Recolte" (The Harvest), was influenced by their desire to keep tradition alive. The earlier generations of Cajuns planted the seeds that would generate an abundance of Cajun music and culture. They had to have the faith that it would nurture and grow. New generations continue to cultivate Cajun traditions because they "harvest" the “crop” of music and culture planted by generations of the past. They do so in an effort to carry on and replant the music and culture for future generations to also enjoy. So let’s all continue to seek “La Recolte”.
“It is not always granted to the sower to live to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith.”-Albert Schweitzer
