A Cajun Barn Presentation. From Eunice, Louisiana The Savoy Family Band. Marc and Ann Savoy and their two sons Joel and Wilson are the first family of Cajun music, but fame and fancy titles aren’t their thing. Despite having played on some of the biggest stages in the world, they know that Cajun’s true spirit is more likely to be found at the jam sessions back at the famous Savoy Music Center near Eunice LA. And yet, that spirit really does inspire the family’s performances and soaks through their raw, sensual, and expert renditions of the some of the best Cajun music you’re ever likely to hear.
The Savoy Family have often been called ‘Cajun Royalty’, but you can imagine 70 year-old Marc Savoy, the patriarch of the clan, being none too pleased about that. Fashionable attention or pretentious branding just aren’t his bowl of gumbo. In fact, just about anything grand and fancy gets his goat.
His heaven is just getting together with a bunch of friends at one of the legendary Saturday morning jam sessions down at the Savoy Music Center, off highway 190, just outside Eunice, Louisiana. “You play a few tunes, you go socialize, you drink some coffee. It’s fun!” he says. “It’s the fellowship involved in it.” Limited space.
