Meet Nouveaux Cajun Xpress
Butch Landry, Butch Golsan, John Ortis, and Clyde Thompson have been playing music together for over a decade. They have performed Cajun style music in venues across the country and beyond. From the Biloxi Crawfish Festival in Biloxi, MS, to the Walker Cajunfest in Walker, MN and from the Audubon Zoo Swamp Fest in New Orleans to a Super Bowl/Mardi Gras cruise to the Bahamas.
They have played festivals, conventions, wedding receptions and company gatherings from Louisiana to Texas, from opening for Three Dog Night in Florida to Thunder Bay, Canada and many other places.
After recruiting versatile Cajun accordion player Jesse Deroche, their first goal is to create a new kind of Cajun/ Louisiana music sound. Though they bill themselves a Cajun Band, Nouveaux Cajun Xpress is much more than that. They will be performing many genres of music including Zydeco, Louisiana Swamp Pop, Blues, and even some old school Rock and Roll.
Nouveaux Cajun Xpress has learned from many years of performing music that the most important ingredients in a successful band are making sure their crowd feels and enjoys the music and the band itself loves playing the music that people appreciate and love to dance to.
Don't be surprised if, during a performance, members of the audience are invited on stage to play Zydeco Scrub Board with the band.
The band is eager to promote its new, self-titled CD, Nouveaux Cajun Xpress. The CD demonstrates some of the variety of music and styles Nouveaux Cajun Xpress loves to play live in their performances.
