Buckwheat Zydeco to Appear in Chicago, August 1

Are you ready to party with the world’s premier zydeco band? Then get your dancing shoes ready because Buckwheat Zydeco is coming to town!

American musical legend Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural Jr. and his band Buckwheat Zydeco will celebrate Buckwheat Zydeco’s 30th anniversary and the release of their new CD (and Alligator Records debut), Lay Your Burden Down, with a performance in Chicago on Sunday, August 1, 2010 at Lincoln Park Arts & Music Festival.

Don’t miss this show!

Sunday, August 1
Lincoln Park Arts & Music Festival
Corner of Racine Ave. and Fullerton Pkwy.
Chicago, IL
7:30 p.m.
$7 suggested donation

With Lay Your Burden Down, Buckwheat’s first post-katrina album, Louisiana’s life-affirming jazz funeral philosophy of renewal–partying in the face of adversity–is on full display, with joyful rhythmic dance music and deeper, more intense songs sharing the same celebratory spirit. Over the course of 30 years, Buckwheat Zydeco has gigged with everyone from Eric Clapton (with whom Buck also toured and recorded)and U2 to the Boston Pops.

Offbeat magazine raves, “Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural Jr. is the leader of the world’s hottest zydeco band. Buckwheat is a brilliantly dxterous musician belting it out with a terrific set of pipes while exuding consummate showmanship. From beginning to end, buck throws it down and slams it sideways.”

Now you can hear over 225 songs from the Alligator catalog on our online jukebox at http://www.alligator.com
