Cajun and Zydeco legend Geno Delafose is celebrating his birthday today.  Geno Delafose is a great ambassador of Louisiana culture and loves doing what he does every time he plays.

Geno comes from good roots to as his father John Delafose played Zydeco music while Geno was growing up and that is probably where Geno caught the bug!

Geno Delafose hails from the little Cajun town of Eunice Louisiana.  He really started seriously touring back in the 1990's and ever since then Geno has toured all over the world, literally.

He has played in almost every state in the US and overseas in places like France.  He also has played in the Caribbean when he does his annual Geno Delafose Zydeco cruise in late October or early November for his fans.

Geno turns 47 years old today and has no intention to stop playing and recording music. You can always see him live!  Here is his tour dates for 2018.

Happy Birthday Geno! Thanks for being a great guy and a great example of the Cajun and Zydeco culture in Louisiana.
