About Booking Cajun Bands
Bring the porch sounds of Louisiana to your event with live entertainment! Cajun music is closely linked with Creole and Cajun-influenced zydeco, as modern Cajun music has taken on the influence of jazz and modern country music. Common instruments associated with Cajun and Zydeco music are: the Accordion, Fiddles, Banjos, Acoustic Guitar, The Triangle, Drums, Electric Bass, and other amplified instruments. Cajun music, once predominantly ballads, has transformed to dance music. The music was essential for public dancing in Louisiana in a dance hall called a fais do-dos. A Cajun dancer will cover the dance floor while the zydeco dancer will primarily dance in a smaller area. Hire a Cajun Band to bring a party atmosphere to any event, complete with dance beats and infectious rhythms! Start your search for a Cajun Band by selecting your city above.
