Mardi Gras Party: ZYDECO FLAMES

Sat, February 8, 2020 8:00 pm


The Zydeco Flames have gained a reputation as the West coast’s premiere Zydeco band.  The Flames consistently pack the house in venues ranging from contemporary clubs to major festivals and traditional dancehalls.  Their sizzling roots rhythms are timeless and the execution of them relentless, with a stunning powerful groove.  The Flames’ sixth CD release “Fire It Up” provides fans with hot-Zydeco and Queen Ida.

ZYDECO is a popular accordion-based musical genre – the blues and dance music of Louisiana Creoles, the French-speaking blacks of the prairies of south-central and southwest Louisiana.  Contrary to populas belief, it is not Cajun in origin.  Rather, zydeco is the music of south Louisiana’s “Creoles of Colro,” who borrow many of Zydeco’s defining elements from Cajun music.  (In turn, Cajun music borrowed many of its traits from Creole music.)
