Overview

Overview Zydeco Dance Party! Jeffery Broussard and the Creole Cowboys

There are few sounds on the planet more danceable than zydeco music. Squeezebox ace, fiddler and singer Jeffery Broussard leads The Creole Cowboys, one of the finest zydeco groups in the world.

The roots of the Creole Cowboys' music are in the traditional Creole songs that Jeffery Broussard heard as a boy when he played music with his father, the late Delton Broussard, and Delton's band, the Lawtell Playboys. Many of those songs originate from an earlier era when Creoles like Amédé Ardoin played music at house dances.  Furniture would be moved outside . The music would give neighbors, weary from long hours in the fields, the energy to dance until early morning.

Born in Lafayette, Louisiana in 1967,  Jeffery, who was the youngest of 11 children,  grew up on a sharecropper farm. Like many Zydeco musicians, his musical career started very early.  When he was eight-years-old, he played drums with the Lawtell Playboys, and then moved on to accordion and fiddle. Drawing inspiration from his family’s music, and the rollicking sounds of late legends like Boozoo Chavis, Jeffery formed the Creole Cowboys in 2006. Today, the Creole Cowboys rock it hard and give dancers an old fashioned Zydeco workout.

The dance floor is OPEN. Limited seating available.  If you have accessibility concerns, please call the box office to make accommodations.

8pm | $20, $17 members (+$3 at the door)
