Southeast Texas Time Capsule – Remember the Rodair Club?

Southeast Texas HistoryThe Rodair Club

For Southeast Texas live music fans, the Rodair Club in Port Acres,  was a stronghold of Cajun music for many years.

Going to the Rodair Club was a family affair with most parents bringing their children to this Cajun club every weekend.

The Rodair Club in the big city of Port Acres was a hot spot of Cajun music, dancing and drinking for generations in Port Acres.

Southeast Texas Cajuns remember well the wooden floors and two-stepping to “Jolie Blon” (a song recently featured in James Lee Burke’s Dave Robichaux novels)  as children, then teens, and still later as adults. Some remember dancing with their parents, their spouses, and then their own children.

    My wife and I went dancing at the Rodar on many occasions throughout it’s history. Always a good time. I worked at the shipyard and took a Norweigen ship captain and officers to the Saturday night dance and was very surprised that the captain did a French waltz perfectly his first try. I guess that he was used to the um pa pa dance beat from his part of the world.
