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.

We are always happy to welcome Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble back to Atlanta! Hailing from Sunset, Louisiana, Curley is the son of Zydeco legend Jude Taylor. He played drums in his father's band, for Steve Riley, and for Geno Delafose's French Rockin' Boogie before striking out on his own as a bandleader, earning praise for his energetic yet soulful sound. Curley and his band bring lots of Louisiana music to the stage, flavored with the blues, soul, and of course, Zydeco. The vocals and unique Motown styling of the band make for a truly memorable evening of dancing. For more information about this band, visit Curley Taylor . Authentic Cajun food for sale from Fusions Catering & Cash Bar.
