Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble at Festival International de Louisiane, April 25, 2018
These photos of Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble were taken during their performance starting about 8:15 p.m. April 25, 2018, at Scène Laborde Earles Law Firm Fais Do Do, the first evening of Festival International de Louisiane in downtown Lafayette.

This year I purchased a pass that includes access to a side stage viewing area. After photographing the band from in front of the stage for almost an hour, I tried the view from on stage. Since the barricaded side area was already packed with other festival-goers, I stood toward the back where I could lean over a rail to get some shots. Had I been able to move to the front, I could have gotten somewhat better shots of the crowd. The side stage view is a good angle for some shots of the drummer and other band members who are not at the front of the stage.
