Mardi Gras Kickoff!!

  • Feb 28, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's get together, and celebrate Mardi Gras/Creole Heritage... with food, dancing and music!!

Zydeco is most simply (if somewhat simplistically) described as a combination of Louisiana French accordion, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, and African American urban blues, performed by, and primarily for, the black Creoles of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas.

Notwithstanding its roots in older rural traditions, the genre as currently recognized and popularly acclaimed represents a relatively recent folk/popular syncretism forged in urban, semi-professional performance venues such as the neighborhood taverns and Catholic halls of Houston's French town district, an enclave attesting to the ongoing rural-to-urban migration of twentieth century Creoles.

*Don't forget your dancing shoes* 

If you don't know how to Zydeco Dance, just go with the's all in FUN!!!

"Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez"  or
"Bon Ton Roule"
