It’s a call to arms, or better yet, a call to hearts. We’re rounding up the tribe at the Acadiana Center for the Arts to celebrate the wild, wonderful life of our brother in arms, the indomitable Dege Legg. This isn’t just any gathering—it’s a tribute to a soul who lived with the throttle wide open, a night to honor our friend, musician, and artist with every ounce of joy and revelry he deserves. Donations at the door will help fund the creation of a memorial mural downtown. 

Imagine a night where the guitars cry just a little sweeter, and the drums beat with the heart of the bayou. We'll be there, under the soft lights of the Acadiana Center for the Arts, surrounded by the art and spirit that Dege loved. It’s a night for stories told, songs sung, and dances danced in his memory. Bring your best tales, your favorite memories, and let’s fill the gallery and theater with the essence of a life beautifully lived.

We'll have music from Dege's friends cranked up loud and art that reminds us why we create. This is our time to lean on each other, to laugh, cry, and remember a man who was more than a friend—he was a force.

Join us as we celebrate Dege: his art, his music, his unforgettable spirit. Come to share, come to listen, and come to say farewell in the way he would have loved best—with a grand, glorious bash at the heart of Acadiana.

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
