ROSIE LEDET & THE ZYDECO PLAYBOYS

Sunday, September 6th - 7:00pm
 
 
Rosie Ledet & The Zydeco Playboys have quickly become the act to watch on the zydeco circuit. Brimming with coy sensuality, Rosie’s music is fresh and daring while still retaining its links to its bayou Creole heritage. Rosie has a rare combination of talent, not only in the zydeco world, but in any musical genre. She can write top-notch award winning songs, hang with the best of them on her instrument, and can sing circles around her peers. She’s from rural Church Point, Louisiana, and is among the few zydeco artists who still sing and write some of their own material in Creole French. She released her first album, Sweet Brown Sugar, in 1994 and hasn’t looked back since. You could go to Jazz Fest and see her, or you can come to the Payomet tent on Sunday, Sept 6 and dance the night away to her and her band, the Zydeco Playboys.
 
 
Opener: Slippery Sneakers Zydeco Dance Band (http://www.slipperysneakers.com/)
 
Slippery Sneakers is a high energy Zydeco dance band that brings together traditional and contemporary Cajun/Zydeco roots music originating from Southwest Louisiana. Their sound is a spicy mixture of up-tempo Zydeco, Blues and Soul, Cajun waltzes, Creole, and a bit of Rock'n Roll, with a heavy emphasis on "the groove" to keep crowds dancing.
