Buckwheat Zydeco Tonight For Banners Series

The McNeese Banners Series continues tonight in the Bulber Auditorium with the Legendary Zydeco artist Buckwheat Zydeco !!!

Buckwheat Zydeco

Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural Jr.’s legacy as a soulful bandleader, arranger, showman, vocalist and organist par excellence was already secure before he became a cornerstone of Clifton Chenier’s classic Red Hot Louisiana Band lineup in 1976, grafting funk and gospel influences to the Zydeco King’s virtuosic boogie. In 1986, Dural’s new namesake band, Buckwheat Zydeco, made history as the first zydeco ensemble to release an album on a major label, and subsequent sessions with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Dwight Yoakam, Willie Nelson, David Hidalgo and many other artists have been icing on the musical cake topped with a 2010 GRAMMY Award. The performance will showcase the accordion-, horn-, guitar- and organ- led band that propelled our state’s indigenous Creole folk music into the 21st century.
