A group of veteran Detroit Blues players who fuse the gritty energy of the Motor City with the upbeat party vibe of SW Louisiana to create a one-of-a-kind sound they call "The Wall of Zydeco."
NOTES
Monsieur Guillaume and His Zydeco Hepcats successfully fuse the laissez faire party vibe of the Big Easy with the gritty dynamic energy of the Motor City. This collection of their favorite tunes was recorded over a period of eight years, both live and in the studio with a line up that variously includes accordion (Monsieur Guillaume), lead guitar (Erich Goebel), harmonica (Wailin' Dale), tenor and baritone sax (Joe LaBeau), bass (Frankie Lee), drums (Ziggy Ziegeler) and frottoir (Perez Morris on rub board) This sampling of Zydeco classics, blues standards, and originals -- all with an infectious driving rhythm -- will get everybody up on their feet. Five of the cats take turns on lead vocals and everybody jams on every tune making this Zydeco Hepcat set a cross between a Friday night fish fry and a jam band concert.
