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.

Known as a founding member of Zydeco Force, Jeffrey Broussard helped originate the Nouveau Zydeco sound. He started his own band, playing single & triple row accordion and fiddle in 2004; in 2007 Jeffrey was honored with the title of Accordionist of the Year by the Zydeco Music and Creole Heritage Awards. Jeffery has been inspired by legendary fiddlers Canray Fontenot and Calvin Carriere, and by his own father, accordionist Delton Broussard. Pssttt...it's Millie Broussard's birthday! Let's help her celebrate! For more information about this band, visit their website at Jeffrey Broussard. Authentic Cajun food for sale from Fusions Catering From 6 to 9 & Cash Bar.
