Live music and where to find it


Live music is something that we have been missing out on for over a year now. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many music venues and places that offered live entertainment to close temporarily or offer limited space to follow particular guidelines. 

Now that regulations are starting to loosen up due to the increase in vaccinations, many locations are beginning to open up again. With the reopening of many locations in the Houma-Thibodaux area, here are a few places to enjoy the live music again.
