30 years of tear-it-up live shows with everyone from Eric Clapton and U2 make Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural Jr. the most popular zydeco artist in the world. His post-Katrina album with his band has him rocking both the Hammond organ and the accordion, reinventing tunes by Springsteen, Captain Beefheart and Jimmy Cliff, affirming the Creole spirit of partying in the face of adversity. Ours is the smallest room you’re likely to see Buckwheat in, and it’s guaranteed to be 90 minutes of Party Gras!
