Meet The Neighbors

Everyone can think of a character they know. Someone who puts their mark on the community. Someone who just has a colorful personality. Someone you just want to know more about.

Meet The Neighbors introduces you to some of the remarkable people who live and work in the Baton Rouge area. 

People like Tess Brunet, who has lived in New York, Los Angeles and many other cities, but chose to start a business in Baton Rouge. "There’s a lot of young people who are trying to make their city better, and that’s infectious," she says. When she returned home to New Orleans after four years as the drummer for Deadboy and The Elephantmen, she found herself spending all her weekends in Baton Rouge. She and her partner Patrick Hodgkins opened Lagniappe Records last year.

Do you know someone like Tess? We want to meet them and hear their story.
