Featured Performances
Pascuala Ilabaca A. y Fauna

Armed with her accordion and her formidable band, Fauna, Pascuala Ilabaca leads the charge of a new generation of Chilean musicians. Inspired by Violetta Parra (the mother of Latin American folk) and influences as far-flung as Mexico and India (where she studied music for a year), Ilabaca’s bass-slapping funk, slow-burn boleros, buoyant cumbias, and more illustrate why Rolling Stone says “she just doesn’t sound like anybody else.”


An eternal harbor for nomadic souls, New Orleans became the haven to which many Caribbean people of Guadaloupe fled at the turn of the 19th century—escaping Napoleon’s declaration of slavery or the revolution that followed. Based in Guadaloupe today, Delgres channels those ancestral feelings of repression and exile— bridging the gap between Caribbean lament and Delta blues with music that captures both cultures in all their bittersweet buoyancy.

Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit cooperative that brings great music to Lafayette. Please consider becoming a dues-paying Friend of Bob

2017 dues are $10, though if you 'd like to donate more, that would be great. (Since we are a registered 501 [c][3] organization, donations above the $10 level can be tax-deductible.) Before each show, we e-mail a newsletter giving background information -- membership dues pay for the printing of posters and e-mailing of these newsletters. Plus, our affordable admission prices in small venues sometimes fail to cover expenses, so membership contributions provide us with a safety net for such occasions. Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that works to bring outstanding live music to Lafayette. A membership form can be found by clicking on the How Can You Help button at the top of this page.

Please support this cooperative effort to bring fine music to Lafayette.
