One of the spiciest zydeco bands in America, Dikki Du and the Zydeco Crew will turn any event into a full-fledged Mardi Gras party!  Bandleader Dikki Du (Troy Carrier) was born to play zydeco. Son of the legendary and much loved accordionist, Roy Carrier, and brother of world-renowned Grammy winning Zydeco artist, Chubby Carrier.

At the tender age of nine, Troy discovered his love for Zydeco music. He would gather after school with his brother Chubby, sister Elaine and father Roy to play Zydeco music. His father Roy Carrier would play accordion, his brother Chubby on the drums, leaving the washboard for Troy.

At the age of twelve Troy moved to a little place called "Lawtell", where his father has owned the “Offshore Lounge”, a legendary hub for Zydeco Music for over a generation.  Constantly surrounded by the Zydeco groove, Troy was destined to hit the stage and the road.

After learning the accordion, Troy created his own band to play originals and zydeco-flavored versions of party staples like "Mustang Sally" and "Fire."  He takes songs from classic zydeco and turns the inside out with fresh and funky renditions driving it to the next level. The band's funky instrumentals, searing guitar, syncopated rhythms, and intricate accordion work push the frontiers of zydeco, flavored with Troy’s famous Louisiana charm, have made them one of the most popular festival and party bands in the country. They dig what they do, and because they do, you will too.


  • "Troy exhibits that Carrier touch with jumping riffs, pounding stops, and constant jukin' that bounces all over the map. Carrier learned his button box well with plenty of tricky dicky (no pun intended) dazzling, which is the catalyst for making the arrangements hop." -- music critic Dan Willging

When Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble is in town, it’s time for a Zydeco SOUL Revival !!!! Nobody does it like Curley Taylor - Soulful Sensuous and Sweaty.  Curley Taylor was born and raised in Sun Set Louisiana and has been around music all of his life. At the age of 16 Curley started playing drums in his father's band, (Jude Taylor & His Burning Flames) which is deep in Louisiana Blues, Soul and Zydeco. Now at 39 Curley has been a Zydeco road dog over half his life, most of the time as drummer for Geno Delafose, CJ Chenier, & Steve Riley, an experience which emblazoned in Curley the fundamental importance of the lock down rhythm dancers crave. At 25 Curley hit the road with his own band Zydeco Trouble delivering Zydeco with a rich Gospel, Soul, Hip Hop-tinged sound.

“A young lady asked me recently, "Is Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble Band as great as I've heard they are?"  I replied with matchless enthusiasm, "They are greater." Some describe Curley Taylor as a rising star, but to be candid, he is a star that has already risen. His incomparable talent as a musician is a rarity. Taylor's "skill and will" to succeed is unbelievable to those who don't know him. If the elevator to success would break down, Taylor would take the stairs.
Alexandria News Weekly - C.J. Bell

“Taylor may be the freshest Zydeco act to come along since Beau Jocque. (Curley’s first CD – Country Boy) is a powerful effort, but as the son of Zydeco great Jude Taylor I'd expect no less. The singing is good, lyrics have meaning, good melody and the band is tight! His sound is fresh and invigorating."
The Times of Acadiana - Herman Fuselier
