Buckwheat Zydeco


Buckwheat Zydeco returns to the Hall with his Grammy Award winning, foot stomping Zydeco music. He dazzled audiences on season one of Infinity Hall LIVE, and will certainly up the ante with this show.

American musical legend Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural Jr.—along with his band, Buckwheat Zydeco—is the preeminent ambassador of Louisiana zydeco music. 2009 marked Buckwheat Zydeco’s 30th anniversary, and Buckwheat celebrated with the release of his Grammy Award-winning CD (and Alligator Records debut), Lay Your Burden Down. On February 1, 2010, the album won for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album. Buckwheat Zydeco has been nominated five previous times in three different categories. This is their first Grammy win.

The New York Times says, “Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural leads one of the best bands in America. A down-home and high-powered celebration, meaty and muscular with a fine-tuned sense of dynamics…propulsive rhythms, incendiary performances.” The Louisiana vocalist, accordion and organ master recorded his Grammy-winner at Dockside Studios in Maurice, Louisiana with Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) producing, as well as leading the horn section which also boasted New Orleans’ own Trombone Shorty.
