Big Chief Monk Boudreaux to Play at Cajun & Blues Music Festival

This Memorial Day weekend, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux will play at the Cajun & Blues Music Festival. Make sure to purchase your tickets now before they are all gone!

In the late 1960s and the early 1970s, a small group of New Orleans students and folklorists worked together to bring the spirit of Mardi Gras Indian tradition to a much wider and broader community. Boudreaux, along with several other individuals, eventually became nationally known as the recording artists who blended their folk traditions with R&B and funk.

Big Chief Monk Boudreaux’s career has spanned almost half a century and he has performed in the world’s finest concert halls, including Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. He has also performed in the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, and France. Big Chief Monk Boudreaux has recorded many critically acclaimed albums and has appeared as a guest musician across many television programs such as Saturday Night Live.

Even though Big Chief Monk Boudreaux has traveled the word as an ambassador to Mardi Gras Indian culture, he remains deeply loyal and rooted to the traditions created by his forefathers.

Check out Big Chief Monk Boudreaux & The Golden Eagles and other great blues music at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival at the Cajun Stage at 1:55 p.m. Save the date for the 28th Annual Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival, coming Memorial Day weekend of 2017. Contact us for more information.
