    Cool Zydeco

    I have enjoyed Zydeco for many years. I first attended a performance in 1988 in Houston, TX and heard CJ Chenier. Zydeco comes from southwest Louisiana and is a very fun music which is very lively. It has a relationship to Blues. I went to La Fayette, LA back around 1989 to a Zydeco festival which I enjoyed quite a lot. Several of the Zydeco greats have unfortunately died but many good ones remain. Cajun music was the forerunner but is not as exciting. Zydeco requires the use of a rub board or it is not authentic. I would like to hear if any other group members have any interest or enthusiasm for Zydeco.

    I was roaming the streets of Antwerp with a girlfriend originally from the Big Easy and we came across a bar called the Cajun Queen. I asked the owner if he had any zydeco and of course he threw on a disc for us to hear. My French is weak but I agree LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

    In the mid 90s for a brief time I had an interest in Zydeco. Looking in the dusty recesses of my collection I've found cds by Buckwheat Zydeco and Boozoo Chavis. Can't say that I have listened to any of it lately, but who knows, I may get back to it someday.
