Description

Atchafalaya founded on Halloween Night 1978 at the Landing in Lafayette was a band that lit up the music scene between Lafayette and Panama City and all across the gulf Coast. Atchafalaya was made up of Chris Foreman, Charlie Rees, David Varisco Larry Menard, and the late Cal Arnold (1948-2008). Their first studio album was on the NiJick Record label and for many years was a staple of the Louisiana Festival circuit. Over the time of the bands existence there were changes at
one point Kenny Alleman taking the place of David Varisco the adding of
Ken Smith for Larry Menard. The one thing you were assured of at an Atchafalaya show was a good time in a mix of all things that make the Acadiana culture what it is today a little french, a little country, a little swamp pop, and a touch of Rock and R&B for a complete packet. For many years the band was sponsored by
Budweiser locally by Herb Schilling Distributing. So it would be okay to
say Atchafalaya “This Bud’s for You.”
