RIYL: Bayou Brothers, Theo & the Zydeco Patrol, Soileau Zydeco Band, G. Burns Jug Band
Zydeco Revolution is fronted by Zydeco musician Ruben Moreno, who grew up part Latino and part Creole in Houston, Texas.
He heard zydeco first “in the womb,” but got his primary education in the music starting age eight, at Pe-Te’s Cajun BBQ House, and the Texas Crawfish Fest. “The accordion and washboard drew me in at first… I remember every Sunday morning jams in my grandmother’s backyard where I learned the most. Sixteen years of those jams. All these old musicians were famous accordion players, guitar players, percussionists, full bands really. Tons of drinking and jamming. Sharing stories and music and their art.”
