The Order of Good Cheers (L'Ordre de Bon Temps) was originally a French Colonial order founded by suggestion of Samuel de Champlain upon arrival in New France, present day Nova Scotia, Canada.  Champlain encouraged his men to hold regular dinners as an antidote to their difficult conditions.  It is said he laid the foundations for the hospitality and music you’ll still find all along the Acadian coast and at Acadian kitchen parties.   


Come join Gus La Casse and learn some lively bold tunes that embody the Acadian kitchen party feeling.
