Bayou Faux Pas: The first flicker of Bayou Faux Pas was at an late ‘80s festival when Rick and Paul discovered some folks having tons of fun playing Cajun music. They became obsessed. But they both played fiddle. They knew one  of them was going to have to learn the accordion, and Paul drew the  short straw. Since then, Bayou Faux Pas has kept audiences’  two-stepping, waltzing, and groovin’ for 25 years – and the latest lineup of seasoned musicians (Paul Rose, Zack Miller, Rich Friend, Pete Marshall, Susanna Rosen and Will Morrison) has the dance floor pumping!
