The Acts Sponsored By Beads 4 Less:

Vagabond Swing: Music should not simply be heard. Music is meant to be experienced. This is the ideal that inspires the eclectic, high-energy sound of the Lafayette, LA based band Vagabond Swing. The band creates the driving force behind their music with their uninhibited blending of styles and creativity. With their musical roots ranging from bluegrass to ska, the band produces a surprisingly smooth mixture of progressive Gypsy/Experimental/Circus-vibe/Swing tunes. Along with their melodic energy, the band members themselves bring on a show of vibrant, youthful spunk, which gives their performance a thrashing air of excitement.


Nik-L-Beer:  In 1978 a band named Horizon was burning up the music scene in the south Louisiana area. Some of the members wanted to make a  change. Four of the members: Kim Leleaux, Dana Latiolais, George Thomas and Laurie Labry left Horizon to start a new group. They contacted Huey Kern and Terry Guidry and asked them to join the band. We started rehearsing at Dana’s house and you could feel we had something special. Our first gig was June 15, 1978 for Scott and Tiny Hebert’s wedding reception in Catahoula.
