Several years ago Houstoniamagazine, producer Robb Walsh made it a little clear how Houstonians fell for the "crawfish". It went this way.

"Cajun crawfish didn’t take off in the Bayou City until 1976, but Houstonians’ appetite for crawfish has exploded since then," Walsh said in his piece.

Each spring, floodwaters force the crawfish to leave their burrows, and Cajuns and Creoles alike gather them in huge quantities . . . .

"The rituals of the crawfish boil trace their roots to the Atchafalaya swamp in western Louisiana and the people who settled there: the Acadians, or Cajuns, who migrated from French Canada and the French-speaking African-Caribbean, or Creoles, from Haiti and other islands.

Our soft rock readers should be excited that the iconic Australian pop/rock duo Air Supply brings their latest tour to Houston's Arena Theatre, weekend of May 1st, 2021 following the release of their newest live album, “The Lost in Love Experience,” recorded with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. Remember soft rock? Hummm . . .our music marketing influences.

With a career spanning over four decades, Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, at rehearsals for “Jesus Christ Superstar” in Sydney, Australia. They became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. Since then, the duo continues to perform worldwide, with over 130 concerts annually, and just marked their 5,000th concert in Las Vegas.
