Today we were able to speak with one of the owners of The Headquarters Salon Nonnie Berard originally from Breaux Bridge, LA. The Headquarters Salon is a full service salon located on 213 Guilbeau Rd. in Lafayette, LA. The business is currently celebrating it’s second year. From outside… it looks like a regular business in Acadiana…but when you walk inside you are transformed into a business with many memories of Live Music and it’s shows. The salon is decorated heavily with guitars, a piano, old classic albums from many genres, and many things that will make you comfortable to relax and give your style a little more Rockin’ look. The salon also has a full time massage therapist Susan Stewart and she is currently running a Swedish Relaxation Massage for an hour for $60.
There are many varieties of styles that the stores owners Nonnie Berard and Krystin Dupuis Avant could have designed around, but after growing up with Live Music in the Acadiana area… with family and friends as musicians… the theme is here to stay! Thank you for supporting music in general in Acadiana and reminding us that creative expression is another great part of Louisiana and it’s people!

Joshua LeBlanc is excited this week…he just finished a few originals and wants you to hear them along with other various music tonight in Youngsville, LA at 501 Sports Bar. (View location by clicking here) Joshua LeBlanc had an interview Monday night on RadioLouisiana also talking about the new trio album…as well as even newer songs on the way for a full album in the future. We enjoyed the interview (below) as well as the background behind the tracks…one track “Glitter and Tonic” we thought was a pretty creative song about three guys in Acadiana hitting a local “gentlemen’s Club” but our favorite for sure will have to be “Watching The Tide” as you will hear immediately in the interview in the beginning played on acoustic guitar.

We are all looking for that special CD to give someone with alot of meaning. Raywood’s new CD is one of those releases that we feel may be one of your
Raywood – Ray’s Joint front cover
favorites if you listen to it just once. Ray Maturin has been a songwriter and vocalist for 30 years and has an amazing track record that you would remember as an opening band for various names like Stevie B., Kyper, Noel, and many more in the early 80’s and 90’s with a band called X-change. Ray has been through many ups and downs in the music industry….from signing with labels and having to start all over again… to playing with Shimmur and now back songwriting as “Raywood.” And clearly this is one album that will make you say this is “heart-felt songwriting” from a man who loves the ability to sing, and loves to sing for people who enjoy live music. Our favorite tracks on the CD are “Walk By Faith,” “Dirty Ways,” “Be That Man,” & “Louisiana Rain.” We feel if you take the time to click purchase the CD below you will also feel it will be one of the best in your collection. If you have been looking for a “gem” in your CD collection this one is it. Best of luck to this Louisiana Musician and hopefully the best of success on the new CD titled “Ray’s Joint.”
