It's always good to see a Lake Charles band get recognition.  This time the kudos come from a popular New Orleans magazine that knows good music, good times and great food.  OffBeat Magazine is available online and in print, and did a great write up on Lake Charles' own LakeSide Gamblers.

Lake Charles’ LakeSide Gamblers, on the other hand, is a trio that breaks the preconceived mold. Instead of dusting off old 78s and devouring every honk and squeal, accordionist Ganey Arsement crafts songs that blend fresh melodies with familiar themes, resulting in new compositions that still feel traditional in nature.

I've seen the Gamblers at The Porch Coffee House in Lake Charles and was highly entertained by the group's talent.  See the entire article about the LakeSide Gamblers here at  OffBeat :: The Louisiana and New Orleans Online Music Resource.
