Last year, Chester Daigle with City Heat performed to a
packed crowd!  They will be back on May 23 so be sure
and mark your calendar.

When you think of Southwest Louisiana chances are you immediately think of food, music and culture. Beginning Friday, May 16, one of Lake Charles’ premiere concert series, Downtown at Sundown, will kick off by Ryan and Broad Streets featuring everything you love about a downtown street fair and party. The main component of Downtown at Sundown is the music, so expect some of the best of the best performing.

For the first concert on Friday, May 16, Louisiana Express will get the crowd pumped up with their dance music, classics from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Chris Flowers is golden with her saxophone and amazing vocals. 

On Friday, May 23, City Heat, a local favorite, will perform a variety of feel good covers sure to get you out your chair and dancing in the street. They are known for their rhythm and blues and jazz and funk dance tunes. 

Grammy nominated Roddie Romero & the Hub City All Stars makes their return to Lake Charles on Friday, May 30 with their “Louisiana Roots” music encompassing Zydeco, Cajun and Americana. 

Topping off the concert series Friday, June 6 is Boomerang, a band that brings sizzling hot funk, classic rock and Top 40 hits.

Look forward to music talent in the 700 block of Ryan Street by Luna, and also the vendors, food and more. All beverage sales of Downtown at Sundown will benefit the Literacy Council of Southwest Louisiana. They ask that no pets or outside drinks be brought on site. Be sure to bring your lawn chair.  The event lasts from 6-9 p.m. If for any reason it rains, the event will move inside the Lake Charles Civic Center.
