The Last Honky Tonk Music Series brings national acts to small communities across the country, creating a camaraderie between artists and music lovers.
The series is a volunteer network comprised of artists, venue owners, radio programmers, sponsors, music industry professionals and music lovers now headquartered in Morgan City, LA thanks to a partnership with D.a.T SaUcE.
“Morgan City, LA is now our ‘Honky Tonk Hometown,’ as it has become our National Headquarters for LHTMS,” Chief Administrator Brigitte London said.
“Our office is located in Morgan City in the building of our national sponsor, D.a.T. SaUcE. on Hwy. 182 E. We are excited about all of the musicians we bring to the area on a weekly basis, in addition to the wonderful local talent that currently exists. We intend on creating a music destination in this beautiful bayou country with events, festivals and visitors to our headquarters location,” she added.
The Last Honky Tonk Music Series is a historic Roots Music Series featuring national artists performing in official venues on a weekly, monthly or seasonal basis, depending on the venue. From small honky tonks to large outdoor arenas, shows vary in size and structure with solo acoustic performances and full band shows featuring artists in the roots country, southern rock, blues, folk, Americana, outlaw country and bluegrass genres who are committed to bringing authentic and powerful show performances to audiences of all sizes, cultures and creeds.
The Last Honky Tonk Music Series officially launched on March 23, 2014 at Bobby Mackey’s Music World in Wilder, KY. Since then, hundreds of shows have taken place across the United States.
Dat Sauce & Last Honky Tonk Music Series will present the 1st Road to 3rd Street Songwriters Festival to be held in Morgan City, LA in April 2017.
The festival is a kickoff to the fabulous 3rd Street Songwriters Festival in Baton Rouge, LA. Road to 3rd Street will feature legendary songwriters as well as up-and-comers in all genres.
Writers will range between “hit writers” hailing from Nashville, Tenn., to local talent. The event even will include a Young Songwriters Spotlight. In addition to performances in select venues across the city, there will also be workshops and classes, a bayou songwriter’s retreat/workshop, a kick-off party/seafood boil/jam bayou-style, vendor booths, a cooking contest, a Write-On-The-Spot Contest and more.
When the full schedule of events is solidified, tickets will go on sale.
