Description

The zany, uptempo style of Louisiana folk music known as Zydeco first emerged from the sweltering swamps of New Orleans--the result of French, German, Spanish, American Indian and Afro-Caribbean co-mingling. The genre has been centuries in the making, and Dwayne "Dopsie" Rubin aims to keep the tradition fluid with his zydeco-fusion band, Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers. Rubin, who has been called "America’s Hottest Accordion Player," plays explosive mix of zydeco, blues, jazz and reggae, while also incorporating other far-reaching genres. The result speaks for itself; the Hellraisers have found fans all over the world with their distinct blend.
