GRAMMY nominated Andre Thierry has been getting folks on the dance floor since an early age of 12. At 33 years old he is already a legend in the zydeco world. Andre's music is not only zydeco but has Soul, Blues, Rock and RnB all rolled into one big dance party. This band can get any room moving, and can play to any event. Andre and his band are known for playing 4 hours straight with no breaks, they never want to lose anyone in the crowd.

"Once the music starts it will be difficult to keep still!''

Andre has been called the closest accordion player to Clifton Chenier (The King of Zydeco) that we'll see in our lifetime. A virtuoso of all accordion types, single row, double row, triple row and piano key, Thierry effortlessly delivers everything from a traditional Creole waltz to a hard driving blues that is his own sound.

In 2008 and again in 2012, Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic was named Zydeco Band of the Year by the Bay Area Blues Society. This year, Andre was nominated for the 2013 Grammy for Regional Roots music.

Although born and reared in northern California, Andre's French Creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana. Michael Tisserand, author of The Kingdom of Zydeco, considered the definitive book on the history of zydeco music, wrote:

"In America, great migrations produce great music. Just as Delta musicians took Highway 61 to Chicago and electrified their blues, so did the Creoles and Cajuns migrate to California and establish vital dance communities. The California scenes now rival anything back home in Louisiana, and that's due to players like Andre Thierry, a standard bearer for the new generation. Thierry is among the best of both the West Coast and the Gulf Coast, and he combines youthful vigor with a mature appreciation for his inherited tradition."

I hired Andre and his band to play at my book party. They were fabulous! My only regret was that I didn't hire them to play longer. You won't be disappointed, I promise!
