The Zydeco Flames kick off Black History Month with one of the United States' most unique art forms. Zydeco is rooted in Creole music, where Black American, Afro-Haitian, and French-Canadian cultures collided, then amplified through American Blues music.


The Zydeco Flames have gained a reputation as the West Coast's premiere Zydeco band. The Flames consistently pack the house in venues ranging from contemporary clubs to major festivals and traditional dancehalls. Their sizzling roots rhythms are timeless and the execution of them relentless, with a stunningly powerful groove. The Flames' seventh CD release “FIRE DANCE”, provides fans with hot Zydeco in the tradition of masters like Clifton Chenier, Buckwheat Zydeco and Queen Ida.
