Zydeco music from New York City!!!!
Dr. Zsa's Powdered Zydeco Band hails from the lovely borough of Brooklyn, NY and is one of the busiest Zydeco bands in the NYC area.
The band plays the classic Zydeco repertoire of the '50s and '60s combined with takes on Old-Timey Americana music and a little bit of classic New Orleans music.
Expect to dance, party, drink, and sing loud along with the band.
Dr. Zsa and the band are ready to make your party come alive!
Accordionist Jordan and Rubboard player David came out for a surprise serenade at a pre-wedding dinner for a bridal party. They both sang too and were a overall a blast... they even learned and did a cajun version of a song in Spanish as a special request. We had so much fun. Thank you guys for adding a little spice to our celebration!
Price Range: $500 and up
Gig Length: 50 - 180 minutes
