"Rock, roll, rhythm, and blues is what we started with in the early 60’s......we listened to and played it all. Music was not so focused as it is today. People danced and enjoyed it; musicians experimented. Call it what you like, it’s me and my friends doing what we do......”
Do you like the Blues? Do you like old school R&B? Do you like real Rock? You will love the Bob Gonzalez Band!
Andre Thierry: Friday, May 4th @ 7:00pm
2013 Grammy® nominee Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of other musicians and music lovers since he was a young boy. Thierry’s French creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana although he was born and raised in northern California.
At only 32 years old, Thierry is already a legend. There is widespread agreement that he is an exceptional multi-dimensional musician who has a finely honed ability to merge traditional zydeco music with hip-hop, blues, jazz and rock. Building from his love and respect for traditional zydeco, his original music is a blend of old and new. His musical mastery enables him to create a unique sound for his and future generations while staying true to the past.
The “King of Zydeco,” the late great Clifton Chenier, grabbed the three-year old Thierry by the arms and deemed him a future accordion player. Andre was captivated—and when local musician Billy Wilson (currently with MotorDude Zydeco) gave him his first accordion, he began teaching himself to play by listening to Chenier’s music.
Andre Thierry can't be lumped into zydeco's old-school R&B-influenced camp or its nouveau, rap-inspired one: He and his band, Zydeco Magic, lay down both soulful, traditional slow-dances and bottom-end-booming kinetic groovers.
