Bayou City Music Series: The Soundtrack of the Gulf Concert at Buffalo Bayou Park

Sunday, September 23, 2018 | 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm


Update: 9/21/18: This event was relocated to the Emancipation Park Cultural Arts Center from The Water Works at Buffalo Bayou Park, due to expected heavy rains.

The Bayou City Music Series resumes this fall with The Soundtrack of the Gulf at The Water Works in Buffalo Bayou Park.

There will be a local market featuring vendors with original products that opens at 6pm. Musical entertainment starts at 7pm.

This event was originally scheduled for Saturday, September 15, 2018, but was rescheduled due to expected inclement weather, and then moved to a new location for the same reason.

Concert Lineup 

The great Port Arthur zydeco accordionist C.J. Chenier—son of the “King of Zydeco” Clifton Chenier—headlines this concert.

There will also be two show-stopping opening performances.

Vocalist Annika Chambers, an Iraq war veteran, has a powerful voice that blurs lines between jazz and blues.

Archie Bell, former lead singer of Archie Bell & The Drells, is best known for his early funk single, “Tighten Up” that topped Billboard’s R&B and pop charts in 1968.
