For almost 25 years (2017) The River zydeco band has been playing zydeco throughout Europe, spreading their passion for this Louisiana originated dance music.
Now with the New album down the line they want to broaden their horizon and take the music to a wider audience.
Euro zydeco is what it’s all about. 12 pop songs with a zydeco flavor to make you feel good and dance. This 10 piece band is eager to spread zydecosis, a fever that will get you hooked on the music and makes you tap your toes.
Ever since Accordion player and founding member Jo van Strien heard a black guy ( Clifton Chenier ) playing the blues on a accordion in a little record shop in London, it inspired him to start the band with his friends.
Like a good wine the band has been evolving and maturing and now in it’s current line up it’s ready to be enjoyed to the fullest.
We would like to invite you to have a listen and perhaps we are able to seduce you to our eurozydeco.
