Today we were able to interview a previous employee of Lafayette Music which has been in existence since 1955. The store was originally opened on Jefferson St in Lafayette, LA and then eventually found a new home located at 3700 Johnston St. in Lafayette also. Salesman, Musician, and owner of Lafayette Music…Mr. Goodrich was a big supporter of Live Music, Music Education, Festivals, and Musicians in General in the SW Louisiana area. For years, Mr. Goodrich also helped in raising over 1 million dollars to help with scholarships benefiting the UL school of music. These efforts helped many locally and continue to do so today in the community. We are thankful to Karl Songne for visiting with us, to speak with us about some amazing accomplishments helping us get to know Mr. Goodrich even more today. Songne was a 6 year employee of Lafayette Music in Lafayette, LA and has learned a great deal by holding the title with his time there. We were able to also speak about local businesses and how they continue to be huge staples in our local community.
We are very happy to take the time to speak about a man who has taken such a huge role in helping our communities economy. Not just in teaching and raising funds, but being such a creative difference to our local musicians, and festivals in the Acadiana area. To quote Karl as an example “He was a man of his word & always stood by his promises.” Thank you for helping Acadiana grow Mr. Goodrich!
