The Daiquiri Queens

Front Porch Stage

Multiple Sets

Presented by Lafayette Travel

A female-fronted Cajun band from Lafayette, Louisiana, The Daiquiri Queens’ unique sound emanates from the combination of diatonic accordion, fiddle and harmony vocals sung in Cajun French. Led by guitarists Jamie Lynn Fontenot and Miriam McCracken, the band brings a fresh style to traditional Louisiana French music.

Borne of close friendships and a mutual love of classic Cajun dance music, The Daiquiri Queens made their debut at the 2017 South Louisiana Blackpot Festival & Cookoff. They’ve since become local Louisiana favorites for late-night dances and major festivals alike, performing at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, The Old Tone Roots Music Festival in upstate New York, and Festival International de Louisiane in Lafayette.

Their debut, self-titled album (2020) is packed with fun and upbeat interpretations of raucous, dancehall-era two-steps, honky-tonk ballads, and heartbroken waltzes featuring the Queens’ signature flair. Suffice it to say, The Daiquiri Queens will surely keep you on the dance floor all night long.
