Jesse Lége & Joel Savoy are a long-time due playing cajun music who recently teamed up with Caleb Klauder and the Foghorn String Band to create the Cajun Country Revival and they’ve put out a CD called The Right Combination which is full of traditional cajun songs plus a few traditional country songs done up cajun style. As you might expect, the CD is pure fun, front to back. This music will make even everyone want to dance, even if just on the inside. Highlights for me are “Ouvre La Porte” (Open the Door), “Tippy Toeing,” and “Corina”. But honestly there’s not a bad track on this CD. Great music for the road.
Three songs from the The Cajun Country Revival featuring Jesse Lege, Joel Savoy, and the Caleb Klauder Country Band.

Last night I headed out to The Berkeley to see Jesse Lege, Joel Savoy, & The Cajun Country Revival, featuring Caleb Klauder. Talk about feel good music. Nothing beats a cajun two step rythm to pick up your spirits. I maintained my usual back of the room position, recording parts of the show for an upcoming podcast. (Still trying to get permission). But the dance floor was jam-packed with people everyone in the room was having a great time.
Sadly, i was not able to catch half the song titles that Jesse Lege and Joel Savoy were playing. My ear just isn’t used to listening to those French/cajun names. But I’ll tell ya it was goo.
They sprinkled in a few tracks from Caleb Klauder’s various band incarnations including a very Hank Williams-esque song, “Hole In My Heart.”
Very fine evening. Here’s a video that will give you a taste of the music.
