Lafayette, LA – Time flies when you’re having fun! The final Fall 2020 Downtown Alive! virtual show, featuring Blue Monday Allstars, will take place this Friday, October 30th at 6 pm. With the mission of providing life care services for the aging, retired, and elder musicians and artists in our community, Blue Monday Mission is bringing together the Blue Monday Allstars to provide a fabulous night of music with a top-notch band featuring some of Acadiana's musical treasures. Emceed by John Williams, this two-hour finale is the perfect wrap-up to an exciting Downtown Alive! season. Presented by Evangeline Maid and streamed online from Acadiana Center for the Arts, viewers can watch the virtual performances by tuning in to the Downtown Alive! Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/downtownaliveLFT. “In a year filled with pivots, we are fortunate to have sponsors like Evangeline Maid that
believed in our mission of sharing an array of talented artists with virtual viewers. Our virtual DTA! Friday nights reached more than 94,000 people this season, which is pretty incredible,” said Anita Begnaud, CEO of Downtown Alive! organizer Downtown Lafayette Unlimited. “This Friday’s DTA! lineup is jam-packed with a ‘Who’s Who of Louisiana Legends’, so you can expect to see guest artists from our own local music community as well as throughout the state!” Downtown Alive! has provided family-friendly entertainment, along with a dash of culture, for nearly 40 years. Although 2020’s Spring and Fall seasons look different from those in the past, organizers are looking on the bright side of things and excited to support local musicians and provide family-friendly entertainment to the community.
Downtown Alive! would not be possible without its sponsors’ support, especially Fall 2020 presenting sponsor Evangeline Maid, venue host Acadiana Center for the Arts, videography by Better Boot Productions, and Paul Kieu Photography. Companies and organizations like Lafayette Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Smokefree Music Cities, LUS Fiber, M.I. Brary, Victor Ashy, CGI, Professional Outsource Services, Rock'n'Bowl® de Lafayette, Lowry’s Printing, Element, Potty Girl, Townsquare Media, Delta Media, and Festival International de Louisiana have also come together to produce this season of Downtown Alive! What’s next for Downtown Alive!? Stay tuned for details on A Very Curley Christmas, featuring Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble LIVE in Parc International on December 4th!
