Music transmutes all boundaries and creates a connection and community of Spirit. With Morgan City, LA being the headquarters location of our National Last Honky Tonk Music Series, our intent is to build a “national music hometown”, thereby fostering this connectivity and inspiring a culture of positive influence. Our end goal is to see a thriving city filled with live music venues and various creative outlets for our residents, support for our own local area musicians and programs for our youth, as well as create a burgeoning tourist destination that contributes to our local economy. Let’s introduce the Spirit of Morgan City LA to the world, with our Entertainment, Bayou Essence, and our incredible Cajun Culture, Food and Hospitality.
