Sam Dauzat’s Club

Status: Closed

Parish: Rapides

Location: Echo

Alton Dupuy: It was an old, straight-board, unpainted honky tonk in the mid 1950s. Chester Lachney was the band leader, his brother Herman, and JT Guillot played with him. I don’t remember there being Cajun music- just old country. The owner, Dauzat, died and they shut the place down. There is a house there now where it used to be.
