Cajun and Zydeco dance enthusiasts who want to keep the music of Louisiana alive and thriving in Atlanta have joyfully formed the Atlanta Cajun Zydeco Association. Everybody loves a party! And what better way to “Let the Good Times Roll” than with a Cajun two-step or a Zydeco syncopated slide? If you play well with others and are looking for the chance to get your groove on, this is the place for you. Welcome. Links to recent stories describing the fun are below.

What was going to be a dance led by Coz Fontenot has turned into a benefit to help pay his medical bills. Led by his decades-long friend Mick Kinney will be some of your favorite local and regional musicians gathered on one stage. Mick (fiddle, squeezebox, piano, lap steel) is being joined by a rotating band (get it?) of musicians; Tony Balfa of the Balfa Brothers (guitar, bass & drums), Larry English of Zydeco T (bass, accordion), Evan Kinney (guitar, fiddle & percussion), Elise Witt, and other special guest artists. The plan is to have these multi-instrumentalists play as many combinations of instruments as possible, balancing their play fun with your dance fun. We haven't tried this before, but, ACZA is never one to back away from a challenge! Authentic Cajun food for sale from Fusions Catering. Please Note:No Bar.
