Creole du NordCAJUN & ZYDECO MUSIC
Creole du Nord
Creole du Nord’s sound can be traced to southwestern Louisiana’s traditional music mixed with some crossover tunes such as “Cluck Old Hen”, “Rueben’s Train” or some forgotten gospel song of the Okay label. When they say they play Creole and other traditional music, what they’re really talking about is some down home sawing or two-steppin’ on a sawdust floor. So come hear the band, move a little and have some fun. Chuck Anderson plays acoustic & electric bass, Beate Williams plays banjo-uke, Mark Palms plays accordion, Mike Zivsak plays fiddle & scrubboard, Marty Somberg plays fiddle, Geoff Kinde plays drums and Randy Markey plays electric guitar & banjo.
