Event Details

BeauSoleil returns to MoMM for a night full of Cajun music and Louisiana flair.  The evening kicks off with Michael Doucet and Sarah Quintana performing music from their new album, Lacher Prise (Let it Go). Doucet describes the album as an eclectic mix of styles including New Orleans rhythm & blues, Southwest Louisiana rock ‘n roll, as well as his own interpretations of zydeco and Cajun, infused with sounds of the French Caribbean. 

For the second half of the show, Michael is joined by BeauSoleil for a set featuring your favorite Cajun music. For the past 40 years, BeauSoleil has been making some of the most potent and popular Cajun music on the planet. Born out of the rich Acadian ancestry of its members, and driven by Michael Doucet’s fiddle playing and vocals, BeauSoleil is notorious for bringing even the most staid audience to its feet.  Since becoming the first Cajun band to win a GRAMMY in 1998 and then a second GRAMMY in 2010, BeauSoleil has garnered many accolades, including twelve additional GRAMMY nominations.

For seated events that take place at the Museum, the venue is divided into two seating areas: Premium and General. Premium Seating comprises the first several rows of seats for guests who wish to sit closer to the stage. General Seating completes the remaining available space. Seating capacity for the venue is limited to 150 guests.

For seated events at the Museum, the seating format is open seating (first-come, first-served) within each designated seating area unless otherwise specified. Reserved seating is available as a benefit through the Museum's Listening & Visionary Track Membership programs.

Will call check-in typically begins one hour before the start of an event. Seating begins roughly one half-hour before the event start time.

No outside food or beverage is allowed in the Concert Venue or in the Museum Galleries.

If you have any accessibility concerns or requirements, please contact our staff at (760) 304-5844 with seating requests or accommodation questions.

Most (but not all) concert events will have a brief intermission. During this time, the Museum Galleries and Gift Shop will be open for guests to visit.

The Museum does not maintain a wait list for sold out events, and we cannot guarantee that a seat will open up after an event has sold out. We recommend purchasing tickets well in advance to ensure you have a seat for a particular event. Subscribe to our eMail list to stay informed about upcoming concerts!

All ticket sales are final. If you cannot use a ticket for an upcoming event, please consider donating your ticket back to the Museum of Making Music. Tickets may be transferred to another guest or donated back to the museum anytime up to 24 hours in advance of an event by calling (760) 304-5844. Tickets cannot be donated back to the museum after an event has already begun or has passed.

Listening to sounds at an excessive volume over prolonged periods of time can damage hearing. Though the Museum attempts to maintain control over concert volume levels, there are instances when performances can achieve high volume levels. The Museum makes hearing protection available in the form of complimentary foam ear plugs. These can be obtained at any time upon request.
