T he excitement and fun of a community gathering, great sounds, artists and a variety of cuisine will culminate at the Arcade Amphitheater for an event like no other in the region. Live music in Southwest Louisiana is not uncommon, however a series of live musical performances that occur three Fridays in a row at the Arcade Amphitheater  with a beautifully picturesque lakefront view in the background is unique. Thanks to the Arts & Humanities Council of SWLA, the City of Lake Charles, Deep South Productions and other businesses/organizations throughout the region, Friday March 14 will mark the third year since the series first began, serving as the kick-off and start of the 2014 Live @ the Lakefront season.

On March 14, gracing the stage to kick-off the series, local jam rock band Fresh Nectar will amp up the crowd . Topping off the night is Lafayette based, four time Grammy nominated Cajun band, Pine Leaf Boys. On March 21, rockabilly and country take the stage with The Loaded 44rz, opening the second Friday. Highly sought after party rock band Flamethrowers will wrap up the night. On March 28, The Onlies come to town, opening the final night of the 2014 season with their Acadian Folk/Indie Folk sound. The grand finale of the night brings Ashes of Babylon who originated in Lake Charles, back home from Austin, Texas with their famed Roots/Reggae sound and vibe marking their second performance at Live @ the Lakefront. You have to be there!
