This band is the most authentic Zydeco band I have heard and did not have to travel to Louisiana. Crowd pleasing and great dance music.
The band was fantastic.! They were generous with their playing time and were crowd pleasers! Hope to have them back for our next event!
Price Range: It all depend how far we have to travel.

What to Expect
A great show and lots of fun
My name I jean-pierre blanchard, I am originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, I moved to Austin, Texas about 12 years ago. Been playing Zydeco most of my life, grew up with the music. I am professional and will provide you with the best authentic sound of Zydeco music, I will perform according to the contract agreement that we have between both parties.
What better way to listen to a band with a live video, what you see and ear is what you get
