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!

traveling to Louisiana and making things even more interesting with adding the styles and various influences of well faceted drummer Dave “Papa-Puff” Nezat,” The inventive well rounded guitar playing of Justin Lewis, The bass playing of Pro Skateboarder Shannon May, and of course the unique vocal style of Matt Thornton. The band is now on their second album and this one is packed with action especially if you are on a drive around the Country this should be your next album in the collection. So many infuences from Hank WIlliams all the way to Dinosaur Jr. with controversial tracks like “Guns” and great anthology tracks like “Cow.” And there are still 20 more tracks to listen to. One of our favorites personally are “Guns” as well as “Derby” we feel the album is a complete reason to be proud of being American…and if you own the flag you should consider making a purchase of the new album. Don’t miss the CD Release show Friday May 27, 2016 at The Feed N Seed in Lafayette, LA click here to view the event. The band will also have The Sour Sedans on stage with them so get readyfor a great night with great Louisiana music.
