Historical Happy Hour

Come check out Minos the Saint on Friday, September 17th!
Join the West Baton Rouge Museum on Friday, September 17th, from 6:00PM- 8:00PM for Historical Happy Hour. This month’s Happy Hour will feature music from Minos the Saint. Minos the Saint is not what you would call a “traditional” southern Louisiana band. Though Baton Rouge is home, the ensemble plays mostly original music, with a variety of influences which yield experimental-yet-accessible original folk rock, uniquely representing Louisiana and the world. Cajun and Zydeco roots are joined by Latin, Jazz, and Eastern European styles, along with the group's shared classical background. Founded in 2013, Minos the Saint uses a variety of timbres including voice, guitar, piano, drums, violin, mandolin, and a brass section, and like the accordion of founding member, Ben Herrington, the band can expand and contract to play to any audience.
Bring your blankets, folding chairs, and libations to enjoy this outdoor performance on the West Baton Rouge Museum grounds near the Juke Joint, located on 6th Street. Minos the Saint will be performing from the Juke Joint’s side porch stage. This event is FREE and open to the public. Appropriate social distancing guidelines and Covid-19 precautions will be in place.
