Buckwheat Zydeco 

When: Sat., Feb. 28, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $18 ADV, $20 DOS
Zydeco is a style of music that emerged out of deep-south Louisiana bayous in the first half of the 20th century. Simply put, the genre blends Cajun heritage with upbeat rhythm and blues, with various accordion instruments driving the music. Buckwheat Zydeco is a pillar of the style. A good point of initiation may be the Best of/20th Century Masters collection, which boasts a number of peak singles from the Buckwheat canon. “Ma Tit Fille” showcases some of the best features of the zydeco sound - jumping percussion, funky bass, Cajun vocal stylings and, of course, jaunty accordion work. And don’t sleep on the zydeco send-up of Little Richard’s “Tutti Frutti.” You’ll be dancing all night. Dig the kitchen’s offerings while you’re at the show too; Mahall’s offers po’boys, gumbo, shrimp and grits, fried chicken and a crawfish boil all night long. (Fun fact: Buckwheat Zydeco jammed onstage with Jimmy Fallon during the final broadcast with Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. (Sandy)
