C.J. Chenier and The Red Hot Louisiana Band: (4:00-7:00pm)
His musical style ranges from the traditional Zydeco of Clifton Chenier right on up to modern funk with healthy doses of blues, R&B, swamp pop and even country. C.J.’s total mastery of the accordion combined with his rich, satisfying voice are the driving forces behind this power-house zydeco band. C.J. Chenier was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2011.
