We bring to the stage a rendition of Louisiana music. Our performance is highly energetic. We captivate the crowd through our danceable music which many refer to as happy music. We provide great entertainment for our audiences & involved them in our show. Our repertoire is versatile. It includes traditional Zydeco and Cajun to sophisticated New Orleans tunes & more.

Bonne Musique Zydeco (BMZ), literally "good zydeco music," is a 6-member band specializing in the Creole music of Louisiana and east Texas. BMZ draws upon the style of traditional Cajun and Creole musicians, and the influences of the blues and New Orleans artists of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s to create a blend of music designed for dancing.

Bervick J. Deculus, a native of Louisiana, bass player and leader of BMZ, founded the band in 1991. He is carrying on the tradition of his well-known family, which includes internationally recognized, Grammy Award winners Queen Ida and Al Rapone, and the innovative Beau Jocque, a circuit to draw in the area between New Orleans and Houston, who also gained international popularity before his early death in 1999.

The band members are all veteran Los Angeles professional musicians. Clients such as Rick Bates, Open Sky Music Festival states, ". . . it was not only just the fabulous performance that made an impression, the band members also left a lasting, positive impression. All musicians were professional, polite and so easy to work with."

BMZ has recorded four CDs, Gumbo Mix - 2001, Keep On Dancin'- 2002, Smokin'Zydeco - 2005, and Straight from the Heart - 2010. Some of the performance highlights are Grammy Awards After Party, The Ahmanson Theatre Rededication, Livitt Pavilion - Pasadena, LA Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, George Carlin Show Wrap Party, The Orleans Casino - Las Vegas, Fremont Street Experience - Las Vegas, and a host of festivals and street scenes.

This group is professional and a lot of fun. They were terrific and everyone enjoyed the show. They interact with the audience very well. Some of the attendees were musicians and singers who joined the band to sing and play When The Saints Go Marching In. The band wholeheartedly accommodated them and everyone had a great time.

This band was amazing. This was a “Black Tie” event with many expectations on the band to be adaptable to various events throughout the evening. BMZ accomplished all tasks assigned to them, from performing dinner music to getting the people up and dancing. BMZ has a diversified repertoire and has a little something for everybody. The band was prompt and demonstrated a high level of professionalism. If you want your event to be successful coupled with excellent entertainment, you must hire this band.

BMZ was even better than we expected. They gave a fantastic show and filled the dance floor. Everyone remarked on how great the band was. Many had never hears Zydeco before and they could not have gotten a better introduction. We LOVED Bonne Musique Zydeco.
