Pine Leaf Boys
The Pine Leaf Boys have been making a name for themselves for presenting their own inimitable brand of traditional Cajun and Creole music with youthful exuberance. In addition to the dance hall standards, they have made a point of bringing many of the more obscure songs of past masters into their repertoire and playing them with gusto. All five members, in their early 20s, Wilson Savoy, Cedric Watson, Jon Bertrand, Drew Simon, and Blake Miller live together in the same shotgun house near downtown Lafayette. Steeped in music since children and hailing from farms and villages in Cajun country the Pine Leaf Boys have been making a name for themselves as being not only a young group of musicians, but preserving the traditional Cajun sound, while allowing it to breathe and and stretch with those who play it.
