CJ Chenier & The Red Hot Louisiana Band
Born in Port Arthur, TX, Clayton Joseph Chenier is the son of the King Of Zydeco Clifton Chenier. He joined his father's band as saxophonist in 1978, then switched to accordian in 1985. When Clifton died in 1987, C.J. became the leader of the Red Hot Louisana Band.

"Hard charging riffs, bluesy shouts in the vocals and a rhythm section that makes two-steps into ratcheting rock." - New York Times
"His vocals and accordion continue to drip with top-line Louisiana hot sauce, keeping the good times rolling with energized adaptations of blues and Creole rnb classics." - Downbeat
Leroy Thomas & The Zydeco Roadrunners - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
