Planet Zydeco concert & dance at Sandywoods

C—Spotlight—Zydeco

C—Spotlight—ZydecoHalf a century ago in the rural juke joints of southwest Louisiana, black Creole accordion players like Clifton Chenier and Boozoo Chavis combined traditional Cajun tunes with the percussive feeling of the blues, a hint of country, and a good helping of R&B to create driving, high-energy music that kept the patrons on the dance floor until dawn. Planet Zydeco captures the essence of traditional rural-style, accordion-driven dance music as it is played in zydeco clubs and dance halls in southwest Louisiana.
