I booked the Bayou Brothers Zydeco band in the Long Beach Bayou and Mardi Gras Festival, in Long Beach, California two consecutive years, 2009 and 2010. The band performed with great energy, great songs, and kept the dancers on the floor. The band was tight and represented the culmination of years working together, resulted in a rich and powerful sound. The members are good, reliable and professional individuals. I’m looking forward to having the Bayou Brothers again at the Long Beach Bayou Festival in the near future.

Bayou Brothers (& Sistas) Rock!  Their energy is contagious, their music is lively and they are great fun for dancing.  And besides being talented musicians, they're also good people- counts for a lot with me.

"They make your soul light up and your feet dance.  You can't stop smiling when they play 'cause even they are having sooo much fun!"
Connie Dahl

Joy, and harmony and aliveness and spontaneity is what the Bayou Brothers have always provided to their loyal fans, and I Rex Paris am one of those individuals.

"Dancing to the Bayou Brothers has saved marriages and inspired children to musical pursuits.
This is true - I've seen it happen!"

***(explaination for this saved marriage quote for you - I brought two couples to your New year's Eve gig - both of their marriages were in great trouble at the time.  One couple, married 5 years, had never danced together. They danced all night and left a bit early to catch their own "private fireworks" at midnight.  The other couple, married 21 years, had never been out on New Year's Eve. They danced until the band stopped, (and they don't even dance), left holding hands, happy, and looking forward to hearing you play again. Both of the women told me it may haved saved their marriages by presenting new possibilities for having fun together.)  Hey - Dance All Night and Stay A Little Longer, Right?

I LOVE WHEN THE BAYOU BROTHERS ARE IN TOWN
I GET TO DANCE MY ASS OFF, i just can´t sit still.....
Thanks guys
Jill fellows

The Bayou Brothers are a wonderful band. I've only just encountered them, and saw them twice in one month. I love them!  Who can resist dancing to their music. Not me. You can't sit still once they start playing.

Dear whoever reads this re the Bayou Brothers:

My story is familiar to most people who hear Zydeco music for the first time: 'Where has this music been my whole life?" From this simple and honest and human reaction, leads one naturally to dancing and learning the beat. Not unlike rock, nor swing, nor blues, nor east coast swing, nor jitterbug, but its very own unique style of jumping and moving to the music, from the original steps taught so well by Greg Benusa and Bill Corwin, and finally to creating your own brand of movement, unique to you.

Thus, as you enter into the world of Zydeco music, one begins to note the differences between bands, between styles and even between those who specialize in the accordion, itself a most unique and moving sound, a cross between bagpipes and harmonica and piano, and  you develop your own taste and preferences.

My tale is everyone's tale, becoming a listener, to a dancer, to a go as often as you can go, wherever this music is played. And there is no finer band than the Bayou Brothers who I have seen grow and change and add music to everyone's lives, who hear and dance to their unique brand of Zydeco.

  • An authentic recreation of a classically American form of music.
  • A foot stomp'en, cajun kick-ass good time.
  • A healthy dose of Mississippi Mojo.
  • Don't bother getting a seat for these guys, you'll never be in it.
