Psycho Zydeco (NSW)
Psycho Zydeco, or the 'Psychos' as their fans affectionately dub them, have
established themselves as one of the country's premier roots act who
specialise in the high-energy, uplifting style of music known as zydeco.
This music was orginally born in the swamplands and bayou area of Louisiana's deep south. Drawing from all corners of the zydeco kingdom, Psycho Zydeco have created their own distinctive Australian style.
Driving washboard and funky, powerful drums underpin skittering, bluesy accordion melodies that weave together music designed for dancing.
Psycho Zydeco have an uncanny knack of crossing musical boundaries. Be it a blues, folk, jazz, world or country music festival, they perform with an energy and fun that draws an audience in and makes them part of the show.
The band has released three albums, toured Australia exentively, been invited to the prestigious Edinburgh Jazz Festival in Scotland and the Brecon Jazz Festival in Wales. Toured Europe three times and have built and enviable Psycho fan base along the way.
Zydeco is blues with an accordion up front. Music you can dance to.
