This year, Mardi Gras falls on a Saturday…or at least that’s what it feels like when BeauSoleil comes to Anchorage. Their distinctive sound derives from the distilled spirits of New Orleans jazz, blues rock, folk, swamp pop, Zydeco, and bluegrass, captivating listeners from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival to Carnegie Hall. Born out of rich Acadian ancestry (the name means “beautiful sun”) and driven by iconic bandleader Michael Doucet, Beausoleil’s bright, invigorating rhythms have inspired audiences to smile, dance, and let the good times roll for over 45 years. From appearances at the Super Bowl and HBO’s hit show “Treme” to capturing multiple GRAMMY® Awards, BeauSoleil’s farewell tour One Last Time — Au Revoir! celebrates the most potent and popular Cajun music on the planet. Boogie on down to experience Louisiana’s hottest export since Tabasco sauce.  “Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!”
