Curley Taylor

June 30, 2017 at 7pm


Curley Taylor and his band, Zydeco Trouble, hail from the heart of Louisiana’s Creole country, the birthplace of zydeco music. Taylor’s soulful, bluesy vocals and the band's hard-driving zydeco beat blend to create a unique style of zydeco and blues that transcends boundaries and gets audiences dancing.

Son of zydeco legend Jude Taylor, Curley adeptly wields an accordion like he was born with it in his hands. Dubbed a “zydeco modernist” by Offbeat Magazine, he has been credited with ushering in a new era of zydeco. The band’s recent cover of Bob Marley’s reggae hit “Is This Love?” became a huge hit in Europe and New Zealand, and they have several acclaimed full-length albums under their belt, but it’s playing live shows that truly brings this band to life.
