Re: zydeco suggestions

May I suggest that you check out www.kbon.com. Click on listen live. A few weeks of listening regularly should give you a pretty good idea of what you like.

Re: Re: zydeco suggestions

I just ordered a clifton chenier DVD .
I'm interested to see how he plays it on the piano accordian.

Re: Re: Re: zydeco suggestions

he plays it pretty well..



Re: Re: zydeco suggestions

Tommee's suggestion of KBON is a fine one, I'm listening to them now, but let me add that www.krvs.org has some excellent programming on Saturday and Sunday mornings (from 7 until noon). Saturday is more Zydeco oriented while Sunday is more Cajun.
By the way, I was intrigued by the idea of Danny Dyson hot-rodding your Ariette. Maybe when I visit La. next week I'll see what he can do with my 114.

Re: Re: Re: zydeco suggestions

i recommend going to www.emusic.com and joining up and downloading 3 to 5 cd's(90 songs) per month for $20....i think the free trail is 25 songs....tons of zydeco and cajun music....

Re: Re: Re: zydeco suggestions

You know...since I'm even less than a beginner...I wasn't even sure what he was talking about in terms of the adjustments he would make. But I told him I had read a lot of bad reviews about how bad the arriettes can be. So I was a little hesitant.
He said he can definately make them "play" ( I won't know the difference because I don't have a stock one )

Pretty nice guy

Re: Re: Re: zydeco suggestions

...and not to toot my own horn, but you can listen to my "Louisiana Music Party" on KNON 89.3 FM, Dallas every Monday night from 9 PM to 10 PM. I spin mostly nouveau zydeco and have been doing it for 17 years. I know it's only one hour a week, but it sure adds up! Listen live at knon.org.


Re: zydeco suggestions

... for some triple row buttom accordion talent look to Andrè Thierry, Chris Ardoin, Zydeco Joe and Roy Carrier just to name a few.


Re: zydeco suggestions

wow..noone has mentioned Horace Trahan's " dat butt thing" CD.....this is a must have zydeco cd.

horace butt thang

that;s a good un



Beau Jocque Live at Habibi Temple is a must have.
Anything that Chris Ardoin has out. "Gon be Just Fine" with Lake Charles Connection on it is what the new sound is all about IMHO.
Hey Rick, I'll be tuning in tomorrow night.

Beau Jocque Live at Habibi Temple is a must have.
--it;s actually called
"Give Him Cornbread ~
Beau Jocque & The Zydeco Hi-Rollers Live"

but it was recorded at the habibi temple
the same night as boozoo's
'live at the habibi temple'

they were doing a 'zydeco shootout' for a movie
which i think is called 'the kingdom of zydeco'
