Hello!
Zydeco....happy feet, happy hands, happy hearts. The zydeco stage is one of my favorites at JazzFest and I am pulled there by the unadulterated joy wafting into the surrounding air, crowd, heat and humidity and intoxicating smells of Cajun food. Et tois!

Zydeco music makes my feet and my heart happy. Who could help but get up and dance to the fun, fun music?

Saw Buckwheat Zydeco outdoors in IL a few years ago. That was a great time. The crowd really got moving. It will be even better yet here in CO.

Buckwheat Zydeco and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, it's gonna be a righteous show!

Zydeco music reminds me of being in New Orleans, enjoying the rich and varied culture of that amazing city. And, there's nothing that drives my toddler to boogie more!

I just love the sound of those tiny accordions!

I love Zydeco music--in New Orleans we was dancing in the streets and I bought a washboard for my daughter! It brings out the rythmn in anybody--it just makes you want to live! Dave Dickey

Zydeco music is funky and you feel it to the core, so it moves me, as a sway to the washboard beats with the soft grass beneath my feet! We don't get good zydeco music enough in Colorado Springs! Last zydeco band I saw was at Meadowgrass Music Festival this past Memorial Day weekend - and I sure would love to see some more soon at Monument Valley Park! Thanks for bringing in good music Fine Arts Center! Can't wait! Hope I win!

What's not to love? I first saw Buckwheat Zydeco outdoors in Central Park in NYC where I lived in my 20's. It would be amazing to see them outdoors again in my new hometown.

Zydeco goes right to your heart and pulls out the happy child inside of you...it's infectious and absolutely MUST be shared ...it gets you dancing on the inside, even if you're not up dancing on the outside!

I have been a fan of all things Louisiana for almost a decade... Buckwheat was my introduction to Zydeco music. I would love the opportunity to see him live.

WOW! What a great prize! My husband and I have had a tough time the past few years with a lot of health issues. Things are starting to look up again for us and we would love a chace to get out, relax and have some fun! It would be wonderful to experience such an event, especially since we're both jazz fans but have never even been to a concert!

My older brother went to college in NOLA and returned home to NY with cool albums of really weird music I'd never heard before...aka, Cajun! And to think that accordions were good for any music besides bad bands at boring weddings, what a concept for me as a kid!

Session Drummer Shay Godwin said...

I am depressed that I missed this! Zydeco music is one of the great American music styles. Most of the great styles of American music come out of New Orleans. I will be keeping my eye out for more drawings.

Michael said...

I couldn't agree more with you!

If you have time please check my blog too, a lot of good music...

Living day to day as a control freak isn’t really that hard. It’s pretty simple to control what you eat, where you go and what you do. You can boss around your boyfriend to do what you want rather easily. Or he’ll ignore you, you forget what you told him and you all live happily ever after anyway.
