Bayou Boogie is a Shreveport (LA.) based 'Louisiana' roots band specializing in authentic Zydeco, Cajun, Swamp Pop, and Soft Rock music. Bayou Boogie is the premier 6 piece band in the entire Ark-La-Tex area. Formed in mid-2011, the band is made up of former 'Red River Playboys' bandmembers Pat Mason and Gary Paul Bertrand who added Tommy Nard on drums, Bradley Reed on keyboards, Kyle Martin on rhythm guitar, and Zef Smit on bass. If Dancing is your thing, then Bayou Boogie is your band.
I'm a professional event planner and hire bands all the time for all over the U.S. I look for a unique style that is a cut above the usual cover band, as well as a sound that will fit the theme of my events or the culture of the city. These guys fit the bill at my most recent reception! They just pulled the party theme totally together and my guests were asking where I found them! Band members all look like they are having a great time on stage, too. Music is a combo of old faves with a unique Zydeco twist to them, plus some original tunes. I highly recommend them.
