Imagine Mardi Gras beads being flung into the audience and joyous accordion music celebrating the heritage of Louisiana Creole music and you will start to get a picture of the effusive energy of a Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience Concert!  For over 35 years, 2 time GRAMMY award winning artist Terrance Simien, 8th generation Louisiana Creole, has been shattering myths about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is and is not. He and his band mates have performed over 8500 concerts, toured millions of miles to over 45 countries during their eventful career. In addition, Terrance and the band have been musically featured in films from “The Lucky One” to Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog.” Terrance Simien is blessed with an extraordinary talent that expresses the deepest human emotions through the original instrument: The Voice. He creates a hypnotic blend of New Orleans funk-reggae-flavored-world-blues-American zydeco roots music that beckons you to your feet and into the groove. No matter what age, a Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience concert is for you. Your whole family will love the jubilant music that is zydeco!
