Make Music Day, June 21, 2017

Local Music and Live Band Karaoke in Lafayette!


What is Make Music Day?

Held annually on June 21, Make Music Day is part of the international Fête de la Musique, taking place in 700 cities across 120 countries. The daylong, musical free-for-all celebrates music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and play in free public concerts.
