MY ART STORY by

Jimmie Breaux

Kaplan
Louisiana

I work for the City of Kaplan but on weekends I am a percussion cowbell entertainer. I play with my cowbell on the sidewalk in front of department stories on Main Street. I also play with local bands and bands that come from out of town. All you have to do is ask the leader singer or the band to play and he will either say yes or no, because he is a musician too. It can be Cajun, Zydeco, Latin, rock, or even Christian music, because music is music at the end of the day. It can give you a great feeling on that stage. Never be ashamed of your culture or yourself—just go out and play music.
