Keepin Zydeco Alive Yall

Thanks to the endless hours of road trips the younger generation is keeping Zydeco alive and taking the time to travel to festivals away from Louisiana and Texas to spread their talents.  The video clip below is to the recent Long Beach Crawfish Festival which just happened the first week in August, 2013.

The video clip is Ruben Moreno and his band pumping out one of Brian Jacks famous tunes from a few years back.  Ironically there are a few less dancers at some of the California festivals compared to 10 years ago but we actually have more festivals.  We only had three main Southern California festivals in the past but the Long Beach Crawfish festival each year has been bringing out more and more high talented Zydeco bands from Louisiana and Texas.  The exposure of Zydeco has seemed to have grown over the years.

Check out the drummer Steven... this guy is an incredible drummer... a step above many Zydeco drummers.
