Welcome to the ACZA

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.

From Charleston, South Carolina, they also play Swamp Pop and Cajun music. Great energy, very danceable, solid rhythm, and the "laissez les bons temps rouler" attitude that makes audiences feel good. Let's welcome them to their first appearance in Atlanta! To hear and see the band in action, visit The Monkey and The Baboon .

Whit Connah Appeal

Many of you know Whit Connah as the accordion and harmonica player and vocalist with The Hair of the Dog. Whit was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Although he has insurance, it doesn't cover the full cost of the in-home care he requires. The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money to cover these costs. Please take a moment to visit the page and, if you feel inclined, make a donation. Donations.
