Why Les Fest?

Les Fest celebrates Alexandria Zoo and former zoo director Leslie "Les" Whitt, who dedicated his life to serving the citizens of Alexandria and promoting the conservation of the world’s wildlife. Two of Whitt’s great loves included the Alexandria Zoo and music, both of which take center stage at Les Fest.

We're cooking up an untamed evening bursting with flavor.

Roddie Romero

Roddie Romero & the Hub City All-Stars

RODDIE ROMERO & the HUB CITY ALL-STARS are a 3x GRAMMY nominated Louisiana band who have been performing internationally at the most prestigious festivals and venues for over 20 years.

They are celebrated not only for their authenticity when performing or recording traditional Cajun and zydeco music indigenous to South Louisiana, but also for their original songwriting which stays true to "Louisiana Roots" inspirations.

They have recently garnered 2 GRAMMY nominations for their Album, GULFSTREAM. They are “Louisiana-Roots-Rockers” who put on an energetic show which is bound to make 'em get up and dance!

Radio Zydeco

Radio Zydeco

With South Louisiana serving as a jumping off point, Lafayette’s own Radio Zydeco cut, twist, deconstruct and reassemble until they create a fusion of unorthodox sound. They bring an eclectic and relatable message into a music tradition rooted in care-free attitude and good-time vibes.
