From festivals to farmers’ markets, Les Amis Zydeco turns every event into a dance party. Its members are all longtime veterans of Cajun and zydeco bands. Les Amis Zydeco has its roots in the swamps of Deep South Louisiana as well as the Bay Area Cajun/zydeco dance scene. Formed in 2009 and based in the East Bay, Les Amis Zydeco strives for an authentic sound whether it is playing Cajun, Creole, or zydeco. Some band members are longtime Cajun/zydeco dancers, and they draw on their ingrained knowledge of what makes for an enjoyable dance evening. Les Amis Zydeco is Dwight Shackelford (accordions, fiddle, washboard, and vocals), Nazar Eljumaily (electric and acoustic guitars), Linda Hutchinson (bass), and Sam Siggins (drums). They draw mostly from traditional roots music and some modern artists from Clifton Chenier and Danny Poullard to the Pine Leaf Boys and Rockin’ Dopsie, as well as original songs rooted in traditional sounds.
