The Pointe Coupée Historical Society invites you to the 2020 Jazz Brunch at Bonnie Glen Plantation. The original owner of the property, Antoine Gosserand, arrived in Pointe Coupee in 1720 and settled at Bonnie Glen in 1758. The property and the home has remained in the same family since the land was purchased and is currently owed by David and Jeanne Curet James, eighth generation to Bonnie Glen. Guests will be welcome to enjoy a tour of the home prior to the brunch.
Jazz Brunch is scheduled for April 19th and promises to be a delightful outing on gorgeous grounds, featuring heritage plants that were grown in Louisiana gardens before 1860, and an ancient live oak called the Bonnie Glen Oak rests on the property and is on the Live Oak Society Register.
Music will be provided by Dr. Daylight's Jazz Company with featured vocalist Sarah Robinson. Dr. Daylight’s Jazz Company is a 1920s inspired jazz group based in Lafayette, LA. Dressed in Prohibition era garb, the Company breathes new life into Traditional Jazz favorites and transforms pop songs into Jazz standards.
