BUCKWHEAT ZYDECO

Tuesday, July 28, 8:00pm

"Buckwheat leads one of the best party bands in America; he can pump out zydeco two-beats or shift into rolling 12-bar blues, steaming all the way." - The New York Times

Direct from Lafayette, Louisiana, one of the country’s great --- and Grammy award winning --- zydeco musicians will get the tent jumping on July 28th. Buckwheat Zydeco will boost the spirits of music lovers with his powerful performance of this soul-stirring, glorious genre. Stanley “Buckwheat’ Dural, Jr., has been leading his band for 30 years. Buckwheat Zydeco has been called “zydeco trailblazers” by USA Today and their Grammy Award was for the album “Lay Your Burden Down” in the Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album category. The band has also been nominated five previous times in three different categories. From the band’s Web site: “If you’ve seen a Buckwheat show, you know what to expect: rocking, stomping, good time Creole party music. If you haven’t seen Buckwheat Zydeco live, you’re missing one of the music world’s most exciting and fun performers.” Website: www.buckwheatzydeco.com
