Dustan Louque

March 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dustan Paul Louque, also known as Louque, is an American singer/songwriter and often called Zelig’s musical son. He describes his sound as somewhere between Mod & Rocker. A native of the Mississippi River Ruhr Valley in St. James Parish Louisiana, Louque loved Fats Domino, Hank Williams, Sr., and Prince. In his formative years he discovered the British sounds of The Smiths, Depeche Mode and New Order at The Gold Mine Saloon in New Orleans. This music had a hold on him and sent him down a path of unlimited possibility. On his first trip to New York while in college, he was overcome with an extreme desire to play the piano. He loved to play Chopin Nocturnes and Beethoven but soon discovered guitar and a singing voice. After living in New Orleans for two years, Louque moved to New York in 1997 to attend The Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting. This proved to be fertile ground for him as he began to write songs for the first time. After living in New Orleans for two years, Louque moved to New York in 1997 to attend The Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting.
