Excellent Website for Cajun, Zydeco, Creole Dances

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

A dedicated Cajun music fan, Arn B has set up and maintained this website for many years. Go to his home page and under the “Schedules” tab, select “Central” (Michigan is considered “Central” to the guys in Jersey).

Then click on the Preferences soft button, and put in your town, and how many miles you’re willing to drive to go Cajun dancing. Arn B will let you know all the stuff going on in your part of Michigan. Most of the posts I make to Garry’s Michigumbo Blog come from Arn B’s site.
