Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys (LA)

The Mayor of Opelousas, Louisiana (the Zydeco Capital of the World) calls Jeffery Broussard “one of the greatest accordion players to ever grace our beautiful Creole culture and for that matter, the world.” Born in Lafayette, Louisiana, Broussard started his music career at the age of eight when he played drums in his father‘s band, the renowned Delton Broussard & The Lawtell Playboys. By his teen years, Broussard had taught himself to play the accordion, and began singing “with a voice that rivals Otis Redding‘s for grit and accessibility”, as well as playing. Now Broussard and The Creole Cowboys deliver both their own brand of contemporary, pack-the-floor Zydeco along with inspiring renditions of Creole classics, those precious melodies and songs he heard at home, at social gatherings and on the bandstand.
