Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas
August 21 @ 6:00 pm
Nathan Williams play zydeco, the fast and furious accordion-driven dance music of the Creole people of South Louisiana. With its trademark rubboard percussion, electric guitars and R&B influences, Nathan’s zydeco sound brings down-home parables that are delivered with surprising musical turns and a distinctive Caribbean lilt. From Lincoln Center in New York to The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Nathan’s music has crossed all barriers to speak to the very heart of his audience. Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2005, he was honored last year with the Zydeco Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The Cha-Chas have been voted the top Festival Band in the country, and have won the coveted Big Easy award for Best Zydeco Band for several years running. Keepers of the Zydeco Flame, they are committed to keeping their Creole Heritage alive…C’est Si Bon! zydecochachas.com
