Gleaning inspiration from early Cajun and Creole dance music as well as the current vibrant musical landscape of their south Louisiana home, The Daiquiri Queens have carved out their own sound in their lively local Cajun music scene.

Since making their debut at the beloved South Louisiana Blackpot Festival & Cookoff in 2017, The Queens have gone on to become favorites at late-night dances and major festivals alike, performing at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Festival International de Louisiane and Festivals Acadiens et Créoles.

Fronted by guitarist Jamie Lynn Fontenot and longtime musical partner Miriam McCracken, the group’s unique sound starts with their vocals- sibling-like harmonies reminiscent of early country duets all sung in Cajun French. Along with talented fiddler and vocalist Kelli Jones (member of Cajun groups Feufollet and T’monde), the three each trade off lead and harmony singing and can easily melt into a honky tonk ballad or a rock n roll tinged two-step. The rhythm is brought together with the seasoned playing of accordionist John Dowden, a lifelong Cajun musician who cut his teeth playing with greats like Bruce Daigrepont, and rounded out by Chelsea “Cheech” Moosekian on drums.



After the music, all are invited to enjoy a screening of the 2021 Disney animated film "Encanto" rated PG. Featuring the voices of Stephanie Beatriz, Maria Cecilia Botero and John Leguizamo.

Film Synopsis: A Colombian teenage girl has to face the frustration of being the only member of her family without magical powers.
