QUICK BIO
Hands down … Curley Taylor is Rochester’s favorite Louisiana Zydeco Artist. Curley rocked the house at the 2013 Rochester Jazz Fest’s Abilene Roots Americana Stage. For 5 years in a row, by popular demand, Curley has played The Rochester Cajun Zydeco Network’s Mardi Gras Party. Everybody that entered the House of Harmony was swung on the dance floor by Curley’s bone thrilling rhythms and heart stealing harmonies.

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 41 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.

PRESS:
"When you listen to Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble, it's clear to see how completely connected he is to the music and to his dancers .... Steeped in the traditions of his birthright and emulating the Zydeco greats, Curley is forging his own path with humbled grace, charm and a syncopated rhythm that simply won’t quit.... Curley and his band are on a mission to draw in a wider audience."
Bella Online - Chris Curtis

“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

C’est Bon Cajun Dance Band

What do you get when the women of NY's top Cajun bands combine their musical talents?

C’est Bon Cajun Dance Band: hard-rockin', foot- stompin, girl-powered Cajun dancehall music!

C’est Bon includes the three original Cri de Bayou members, Barbara Sanders on accordion, Jane Delisa and Susi Mills on twin fiddles, Betsy Fuller (All Night Ramblers) on guitar, and Evelyn Schneider (Jesse Lége and Bayou Brew) on bass. These harmonious sisters have been singing and playing high-energy Cajun music to crowds in the area for over 20 years, keeping the spirit alive and well. Since coming together as a band in September 2010, C’est Bon has been storming the East Coast, playing at numerous dancehalls, festivals and clubs from Manhattan to Fort Lauderdale.

EVENT BASICS:

 

Here’s what people are saying about C’est Bon:
“The Bop Shop's 14 Fridays series brought the heat to get you off your seat with an outstanding show from the all-female Cajun band C'est Bon. This is not subtle music. It's revved up both musically and rhythmically with a load of energy and stamina. The ladies of C'est Bon traded off vocals over the pump of the button accordion...It was passionate, immediate, sexy and cool.”
- Frank DeBlaise, music critic at City Newspaper, Rochester NY
"If anyone hasn't gotten a taste of these ladies' music, you're in for a definite treat. This is one of the best things out of the Northeast, if not the recent best in Cajun music. 'In your face,' but with a big happy smile."
- Jesse Lége, Cajun Music Hall of Fame inductee
"I love your band! Y'all are such fun. You’re respectfully channeling a love for the Balfas and traditional Cajun music. Bon job!”
- Ann Savoy, esteemed musician, author, and record producer
