Ervin Lejeune
Note: Ervin Lejeune died January 26, 2018, in Lake Charles at the age of 67. He played with numerous Cajun bands at clubs, festivals, and nursing homes, including tribute shows honoring his father. He also built some 300 accordions under the "Professional" trademark, making the first one in 1972 for his grandmother, who taught him to play accordion when he was nine years old. His grandson, Kegan Navarre, is the leader of the band Louisiana Traditions.

Ervin Lejeune is the son of the truly legendary Cajun musician Iry Lejeune. Ervin performed at a booksigning of a biography of Iry Lejeune by Ron Yule, written in collaboration with Ervin. The event was held at the Cajun French Music Association Hall of Fame and Museum in Eunice May 19, 2007.
