Buckwheat Zydeco – Zydeco Boogaloo

I was in New Orleans last week, when I came home I realized I need to add more Zydeco artists to my collection.  The only artist I have is the legendary Buckwheat Zydeco.  One of my favourite Buckwheat songs is Zydeco Boogaloo and it is the song of the week.

I love this genre of music especially live at a bar.  While in New Orleans I searched high and low on Bourbon Street for a Zydeco band and finally on my last night found one.  I bought a washboard at the bar and brought it home for my daughter, the percussionists, to play.  While googling how to play the washboard I came across this guy from the band Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers – check out how fast his arms are moving in the video at the end when he does his washboard solo…music is great as well.

    Hey Mark,
    These picks bring back memories for me. Leo and I were driving from Texas to New Orleans to attend Mardi Gras. We stopped near Lafayette at a restaurant called Mulates, although it was only 9 am the bar was open and the Zydeco band was in full swing. Thanks for the memories.
