Steve Riley and his two sons, Burke and Dolsy, will be the next musicians to take over the Downtown Alive! Facebook page for a virtual Friday night concert.

Riley, best known as the leader of Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, is a Grammy-nominated Cajun musician. He and his sons have been posting Sunday live events on their own Facebook page. The Riley family will perform via a live stream video on the DTA! Facebook page at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 1. The online concert will serve as a source of revenue for the Riley family, who has lost gigs due to COVID-19. It will also aim to bring the Acadiana community together during this time.

This Friday's performance will be broadcast as a live video and will also be shared on the Downtown Lafayette website and social media channels following the stream. The performance will be broadcast on AOC channel 1 (LUS 3 or COX 15). Audience members are encouraged to contribute by leaving tips for the musicians as they watch, donating to the Feed the Envie Fund on Facebook (to raise funds for out-of-work service industry professionals in Downtown), or purchasing DTA! merchandise (a portion of sales will go to local musicians).

DTA! House Sessions began as a way to bring the music of local musicians into the homes of people across Acadiana during the coronavirus pandemic.
