Jr. Hebert and the Maurice Playboys at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles, Oct. 15, 2016
Jr. Hebert and the Maurice Playboys performed on the Ma Louisiane Stage at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles Oct. 15, 2016, in Lafayette’s Girard Park. The previous week, Hebert and his band won numerous Le Cajun awards presented by the Cajun French Music Association: Accordionist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Best First CD, Best Traditional CD, and Band of the Year. The CD’s title song, “Coursais une Reve” (about chasing his dream to play the accordion), was name Song of the Year. Band member Jason Bergeron was named Fiddler of the Year.

The front part of the Ma Louisiane stage was in bright sunlight, creating problems photographing sharp contrasts between sun and shade.
