First annual Fais Do-Do to feature Steve Riley and The Mamou Playboys

 Legacy Housing Foundation’s upcoming benefit promises to be a party like no other in this neck of the woods. On Nov. 9 the Foundation will host “Fais Do-Do,” a Cajun dance party complete with hearty gumbo, sizzling two-stepping and one of the world’s best Cajun bands, Steve Riley and The Mamou Playboys.

Legacy’s Fais Do-Do will be held at The Standard at 416 W. Jackson Ave. in downtown Knoxville. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the gumbo supper and the band will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $60 and can be purchased online at

Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys entertain with Cajun French music driven by the accordion and fiddle to deliver authentic southwestern Louisiana sound. The band has released more than a dozen albums and this year celebrates 30 years together as the powerhouse of Cajun music.
