Living Legends

Richard LeBoeuf
Inducted on August 12, 2000

Richard LeBoeuf LeBouef recalled the first time he played at Eunice's Liberty coordinator of the statewide FrancoFete '99 celebration beginning in January.

"When those curtains opened. I felt like a bullfrog in a pond with the gigger's headlight shining in his eyes." LeBouef said. "To me, it was like playing Carnegie Hall. I was awe-struck at the popular acceptance Cajun music was getting again, and it still feels great every time I go on stage."

LeBouef. framed by the stage backdrop of a mural of famed Erath musician and Cajun music ambassador D.L. Menard, launched into Menard's seminal anthem. "The Back Door." a song that's part of the standard repertoire of nearly every Cajun band. The cafe features live Cajun music each Friday and Saturday night.
