Last Saturday, the Ben Terry benefit was held in Lake Charles at the Burton Coliseum.  The event was attended by thousands of folks coming to support Ben while enjoying great live music.

Three-time Grammy Award nominee Sean Ardoin got us started at 10:00 am, followed by the Charlie Wayne Band, an auction, Gyth Rigdon, and to close out the day of entertainment, Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie.

Before Geno took the stage, I ran into Cajun music and Louisiana legend Terry Beard at the event. Terry Beard is the lead singer and songwriter for the legendary Louisiana and Cajun music band MOE-D.

He and the band are responsible for songs like The Gumbo Song, A'int Gonna Rain No More, Old Fooll In The Mirror On The Wall, I Dreamed Of Momma, Bottom Of The Glass, and Chicken On The Run.
