Uncle Randeaux is Randy Navarre, pure Cajun. His mother was from Carencro, Louisiana, and father’s family from Gueydan, Louisiana. Like many Cajuns, when the oil refineries and chemical plants opened in Texas, in the 1940’s, they moved where the jobs were plentiful. This became jokingly known as Lapland, where Louisiana lapped over into Texas. Born in Pt. Arthur, Texas, Uncle Randeaux lived in what is known as the Golden Triangle (Beaumont, Pt. Arthur, Orange). Because of his Cajun accent, he spent 5 out of the 6 years in elementary school in speech therapy where they did their best to get rid of his Cajun accent. From his videos, you’ll have to judge if they were successful! After graduating from Port Neches-Groves High School, he went on to Nacogdoches, Texas, and attended Stephen F. Austin State University where he majored in music. From there he moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he obtained his Masters of Music degree at Temple Universit and received a Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Maryland. Randy Navarre is a composer, arranger, saxophone player, educator, and music publisher. He is married and has two children and two grandchildren. He has traveled extensively and is known as the Cajun that loves life and loves to laugh.
