Bakery offers 'pop-up' music
Last updated 7/25/2023 at 11:25am
Angeline’s Bakery will begin offering a few pop-up music events in their magical backyard setting this month. As summer begins to hit its groove so will the Bakery’s local music scene. The bar will be stocked, and the grass will be ready for dancing.
The first event is quirky band from New Orleans: Bon Bon Vivant.
Bon Bon Vivant (BBV) is a genre-bending band that pulls from singer-songwriter/ pop/Americana/dark ballads and up-tempo indie dance music — but they would prefer you to just listen to the music. BBV’s original music is rooted in storytelling and pays honor to a uniquely New Orleans sound while infusing an indie flavor that leaves a lasting mark on listeners. This band’s songs are joyous, fierce, honest, and heartbreaking as they chronicle life and all it entails through the sounds of the minor keys.
Bon Bon Vivant is made up of songwriter/front-woman Abigail Cosio, saxophonist/vocalist Jeremy Kelley; on sousaphone and bass is Jason Jurzak; drums and percussion by Deacon Marrquin. The band’s unique instrumentation is also a thing to watch and leaves listeners reaching to identify what kind of music they are hearing. With brass horns and a rotating cast of New Orleans musicians coming through, this sound is alive and something to experience.
Locally, BBV is one of the highlighted acts in the New Orleans music scene, awarded Best Emerging Artist of 2018 by OffBeat Magazine. BBV plays regularly in New Orleans, with upcoming appearances at French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest, Bayou Boogaloo and tours regularly spreading the gospel of decadence, reverence, and revelry with their infectious live shows. A second full-length studio album is coming out soon with a supporting tour. See them play all over the country in theaters, clubs, festivals, and even the occasional pop-up street busk. This band has a truly timeless and unique sound.
Shows starts around 7 p.m .; come early to grab a table and some dinner.
Cover is $5 to $10, sliding scale.
