Travis Matte and The Kingpins
Lafayette, LA, USA
It all started in Sept. of 2004 when we released our first CD entitled "Dis ain'tcha momma's Zodico" which featured the song "Bar be que and drink a few" and received a lot of air play throughout Louisiana. So, in Jan. 2005 we started doing live shows and formed a formal group. The first CD was such a success and the band draw at clubs/festivals became increasingly growing we decided it was time for another CD
Jean-Pierre and The Zydeco Angels
Austin, TX, USA
Many times, people ask me to play Zydeco when I am playing Clifton Chenier, Rocking Dupsey, John Delafonse style and I'm thinking, I wish they would have been there and heard the old style of Zydeco, in my opinion that was the real Zydeco. It's like making a gumbo without the roux, Laissez les bon temps roulez, cher !
