Sabine Connection is a zydeco band that combines the best musicians from Louisiana and Texas to bring a unique blend of old school and new school zydeco. We are one of the best up and coming zydeco bands in the land.
Wow - these guys are SO awesome. My husband and I hired Sabine Connection for a big private BBQ the day after our wedding, and these guys were just A+ -- so talented, fun, professional, and accommodating! Case in point: when we arrived for the event, we realized that the venue had incorrectly instructed the band to set up all their equipment inside, when in fact, we needed them to be outside on a patio. That said, the band was very accommodating and went through the trouble of breaking down and setting up AGAIN so they could play in the right location for us. The music was amazing too - very fun, high-energy Zydeco tunes, which got all our guests up on their feet dancing. The musicians were also very engaging, taking requests, leading dances, and even letting a few guests give their washboard a go!! This BBQ was absolutely a highlight of our wedding weekend, in huge thanks to Sabine Connection - highly recommend them! :)
This band had us up and moving! We don't normally hire a band for our annual conference, but we took a chance and loved it! We would hire them again in a heartbeat!
The Sabine Connection surpassed our expectations! They are a very talented group both in vocals and instruments, and even invested time to learn new songs because they were some of my husband's favorites. This band was part of a surprise party for my husband, and he has played and enjoyed Zydeco music for over 25 years, so not an easy sell. I would strongly recommend this group, and I also loved hearing about the band members' family history tied to music. Most of the 40 people at the party didn't know much about nor hear Zydeco music before being from Chicago, California, Europe and east coast. They have been pleasantly exposed and danced their tails off! Thank you, Beau Bayou and Sabine Connection. You ROCK, well, ZYDECO!!!
The band was absolutely great and their performance was extremely well like. The members were friendly to everyone and was very professional. They started on time and played continues for 2 hours. Their style of music and selections were great. We would definitely invite them back.
What a great band. They had the whole crowd dancing. They made the night. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.
The band arrived on time and were polite and there were no hitches, just a fun time.

Hi my name is Beau Bayou. I am the lead singer and accordion player for Sabine Connection. My family is very rich in the tradition of cajun and zydeco going back four generations. My great-grandfather and his first cousin Aldus Roger first brought the musical tradition to our family. My dad, Mike Arabie, was a professional accordion player for many years. He had his own band, and as he got older would sit in with many bands. He was known to be one of the best accordion players in the Acadiana area. I am very proud and honored to carry on the musical tradition of my family. I hope that you enjoy the videos I have posted.
Additional Booking Notes
Our stage area should be at least 8' wide by 8' deep. Lighting is always up for debate. Sound will also be up for discussion. I bring my own sound equipment.
