The Lafayette based band, The Onlies, will highlight the Lake Charles Symphony’s annual Wild Beast Feast on Sat., Mar. 29, 2014, with its special blend of folk and bluegrass music. With the release of “Open Road” in 2013, the group has discovered that the road truly has opened up for them. Their album was produced by Grammy nominated producer and engineer Terry DuPuy who has worked with Hunter Hayes, Roddie Romero, and Feufollet among many others. Though The Onlies started out as a duo with Fawn Larson and Will Harrison, they have since added music veteran Gary Newman on upright bass and Luke Andrus on drums. “Larson’s siren-like vocals will sweep you in with the ebb and flow of her carefully crafted lyrics while Harrison’s playful yet rough edge becomes softened as their melody and harmonies intertwine.”
The Onlies continue to stick to their folk roots while borrowing from bluegrass, old country, Cajun, blues, indie and pop to make one incredibly enjoyable and diverse album. Guests at this popular symphony fundraiser will be tapping their feet and singing along while sampling the savory dishes of more than 20 cooking teams. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., a live auction begins at 7:00 p.m., and music will be played until 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $50 for ages 14 & up, $25 for ages 7-13, and 6 & under are free.
