Zydeco Crawdaddys

For over 20 years, PJ Jarvis and the Zydeco Crawdaddys have been bringing the music of Southern Louisiana to community concerts, Mardi Gras events, festivals, wineries, private parties, and anywhere people enjoy having fun. Headquartered in St. Louis, MO, they will treat you to a wide variety of traditional as well as contemporary Zydeco music from the French Creole region of southern Louisiana. Founded by Paul (PJ) Jarvis in 1996, the Daddys will take you back to the bayous of Lake Charles and Lafayette, where the infectious rhythms of traditional zydeco instruments make all its listeners smile, no matter what age, race or gender. Audience participation with rub boards and shaker cans is always permitted, if not actively encouraged. And during the show, the Daddys heat things up with their own renditions of traditional New Orleans style jazz numbers, interspersed with many original compositions.
