Lagniappe
Lagniappe
Lagniappe, pronounced “Lanyap”, Cajun French for “a little something extra” is the area’s only traditional Cajun – Zydeco band featuring hot Cajun two-steps, waltzes, New-Orleans traditional jazz, blues, western swing and American roots with a twist of Eastern European Gypsy music!

The band features: Chico Converse on fiddles, saxophones & vocals; Dick Franz on accordion & bass; Yvan Verbesselt on drums & percussion including the Cajun triangle (‘ti-fer) & Zydeco wash board (frottoir); John Mooter on keyboard, trombone, cornet & slide trumpet; Michael McIntire on guitars & vocals; & Laura Sabo on bass & clarinet.

The band has been featured in the areas various bars/restaurants (Arnold’s, Southgate House, Andouille’s,…), festivals (Tall Stacks, Vinoklet, Celtic World, Old Timer’s in Rabbit Hash, …), schools, museums, inaugurations, Mardi-Gras events, etc…since 1992.

Yvan, who joined the band in 1992, along with Chico, who founded the band around 1990, both spent 10 years of their lives as French teachers, respectively in Lake Charles and Lafayette, Louisiana, where they picked up Louisiana’s “Joie de vivre” along with the sounds, melodies, rhythms and tempos of the bayou and New Orleans. Dick joined the band in 1998; John around 2007, Laura in 2010, and Michael in 2013.
The band’s first and only CD “Irrational Exuberance” was recorded in 2009.

Last but not least, We love to stroll!
