Jean-Pierre Mundal

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to meet with Jean-Pierre Mundal and his wife Dutchess while in Hawaii recently. Jean-Pierre is the founder of the group The Bayou Cadillacs there. (See active link #3 above)

I can't say enough about JP and his wife - REALLY GREAT people and our lunch meeting soon quickly went to close to 5 hours! Maholo nui loa, JP and Dutchess, for the nice lunch, leis, and island hospitality! We hope to meet up with you again soon!

We're already beginning to plan our next trip to the islands, so hopefully will be able to get to hear the band play then!

MAGNIFIQUE to see that Bon Temps ready to fire up..

They're 'ripper'accordions aren't they? ..my Jude Moreau made- to -order Bon Temps Bb is a killer.

AND you caught up with our great friends Joanie and Mike....Mike doesn't mind a cold drink on a hot day..ya know what I mean ?

Any comments on your accordions performance so far?

Re: Re: Jean-Pierre Mundal

Dazz a purty one! Love the black with pearl inlay -- NICE choice. Man, Jude knows how to build 'em. BTW, I've recently picked up Jude's CD (the one on which he sings La Valse de Pecanaire) and have been playing it on my radio show. His family throws in some fabulous harmonies on it. He sings, he plays, he builds. I gotta meet this guy!

Thanks Jean-Pierre!


Re: Thanks Rick

Impatiently awaiting my new Jude Moreau, a wet tuned C all white and silver, I guess the Yang to my Ying (or is it the other way around).
Love your site my the way Rick.

Re: Jean-Pierre Mundal looking for bass player

Any bass players want to move to Hawaii?
I hear JP is looking for a bass player for the Bayou Cadillacs.


Re: Re: Jean-Pierre Mundal has found bass player

Thanks much for the thought guys. We have had incredible luck in finding a great bass player navy guy from Opalousas stationed in Hawaii. He grew up on Zydeco. It's a real struggle finding musicians who have a clue outside Louisiana. Thanks again for the interest.
