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.

For those of us who make regular pilgrimages to Louisiana, this is one band we always try to find. In the juke joints or on trail rides, they consistently bring the audience to the dance floor, and won't let them leave! Terry Domingue was raised singing traditional and original Zydeco songs in both English and Creole French. Watching the band perform makes us smile; they come to the stage with a joyful rhythm and a love of music, culture, and dance. For more information, visit Terry & the Zydeco Bad Boys . Authentic Cajun food for sale from Fusions Catering. Please Note: No Bar.
