Old Country Zydeco Sound... Irresistible Dance Grooves... that is ZYDEGROOVE.

We pride ourselves on capturing the flavor of music you can normally only find in the vicinity of Lafayette, Louisiana. As such, we are an outstanding choice for Mardi Gras themed events, conventions, weddings, birthdays, fundraisers, community concerts, and especially dances.... just about any event you want to be fun and maybe just a bit "outside the box".

Our reputation as a highly danceable band has garnered us many engagements at dance oriented festivals and zydeco community dance events.

The musical careers of our six band members are long and deep in both Cajun and Zydeco. Band Leader Laren Droll has been playing accordion for 25 years and with many bands over the years including Dirty Rice, Flames of Hell, Krewe de la Rue, and Bunkhouse Boys (a new Cajun trio). Fiddler Roger Weiss honed his skills playing as a Cajun duo with Cleoma's Ghost, and is now active in the Cajun Band Krewe de la Rue and the Cajun trio Bunkhouse Boys. Gary Graeff on electric guitar learned to play as a youth in Lafayette, Louisiana. Born to a Cajun Mom, Gary is a fine drummer in addition to his prodigious skills on guitar. Gary has played with the likes of Chuck Berry, Big Mama Thornton, Jimmy C Newman, Rufus Thibadeaux, Steve Riley, Joel Savoy, Jesse Lege, and numerous other bands. Alan Bradbury is one of the coolest bass players around, especially for zydeco. Alan also plays accordion and fronts the band Magnolia. Doug Chapman on drums has played with many bands over the years such as Little Ann and Hot Cayenne. Maggie McManus is known as a fabulous zydeco dancer as well as long time rubboard star of Dirty Rice, Krewe de la Rue, and ZydeGroove.

Our wedding reception was incredibly fun - everyone danced and had an amazing time. One of the band members taught a Zydeco lesson which was so great that there was hardly any room on the dance floor! We had a hard time getting our families to take photos because no one wanted to be away from the music. The band was upbeat, happy, responsive and even stayed longer because no one wanted them to stop playing. We highly recommend them for weddings - and for any gig for that matter. We look forward to seeing them play again in the area!
