CJ Chenier & His Red Hot Louisiana Band
December 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
CJ Chenier’s father, the legendary Zydeco King Clifton Chenier, literally invented Zydeco and was the first Creole musician to be recognized with a Grammy Award. Immersed from birth in this indigenous American culture, with its own distinctive language, cuisine and music, C.J. delivers soulful vocals along with jaw-dropping, masterful, accordion-driven Rock, Zydeco and Blues.
When Clifton died in 1987 C.J. adopted the Red Hot Louisiana Band and recorded his debut album. He has toured with Paul Simon, John Mayall, The Gin Blossoms, Joe Sample and Sonny Landreth. He has appeared on The Jon Stewart Show and been featured on CNN.
He guarantees every audience: you may come in tired and beat up just from living in this world – but you will leave renewed and happy.
