Travis Matte and the Kingpins will take the stage at "Downtown at Sundown" in Lake Charles from 6:15 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 24.

Since 2004, the group has blended together various musical styles and influences that go beyond Zydeco, including rock and hip-hop.

The group has an original sound that is evident in their songs such as "Zydeco Train" and "Barbeque and Drink a Few."

Their most recent album, "Let's Party", is one of eight.

Organizers said other entertainment and activities will begin at 5:30 p.m. including food, art and merchandise vendors.

Downtown at Sundown will take place within the 700-800 blocks of Ryan Street (between Division and Pujo Streets in Lake Charles).

Officials said the two blocks will be closed to vehicle traffic and street parking in accordance with a special event ordinance.

All cross streets will remain open for traffic. Surrounding parking lots will be open and available for parking cars.

Sponsors for this event are the American Press, CITGO, Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel and Entergy.

The series will continue with Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble on May 31 and City Heat on June 7.  

In the case of inclement weather, the concerts will be held inside the Lake Charles Civic Center.

    Rain chances increase MondayRain chances increase Monday

    By tonight, rain chances will be low. We will start with partly cloudy skies, becoming mostly clear late. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. A few places north of I-10 will be in the 60s. It will still feel muggy overnight, thanks to the humidity. There could be some areas of patchy fog in the early morning hours on Monday. As we go through next week, the big story remains warm temperatures.
