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
