Sheryl Cormier and Cajun Sounds at the Liberty Theater, June 17, 2017
Sheryl Cormier and Cajun Sounds performed at the Liberty Theater June 17, 2017. Russell Cormier Sr., Sheryl’s husband and the band’s vocalist, had three stents inserted a few days earlier, so, taking it a bit easy after that medical procedure, he let show host Ray Landry handle some of the vocals. Other members of the band were Zachary Fuselier on fiddle; Robbie Miller on electric guitar; Jimme Usie on bass; Jimmy Breaux on drums; and guest Nolan Benoit on rubboard. Ethan Airhart, and up and coming young accordionist and vocalist, joined the band for several songs.

Among the Cajun favorites performed by the band were Belton Richard’s “I’ll Take the Blame” and “Give Me Another Chance.” Introducing the songs, Sheryl and Ray reported that Belton has been hospitalized with pneumonia. They wished him a speedy recovery and asked that everyone keep him in their prayers.
