Zydeco-a-Go-Go, the Mid-Atlantic’s premier practitioners of Louisiana dance music, are bringing the zydeco party to the people. Their motto is “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!” or “Let The Good Times Roll!” At the heart of any Zydeco-A-Go-Go song is the classic zydeco sound of accordion and frattoir (rubboard) augmented by saxophone, electric guitar, electric bass and drums. Cajun 2-steps blend with Creole zydeco and classic New Orleans rhythm & blues in a spicy gumbo of Louisiana dance music. Their performances feature lyrics sung in English, Spanish, Cajun, and Creole French, set to a beat that keeps people dancing all night long. The night will also feature special guest performer Steve Guyger, a renowned Chicago Blues harmonica player.
