San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM & San Jose Jazz for a live performance with Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic on Friday, August 16th, 2013 @ 7:00pm
Andre Thierry formed "Zydeco Magic” at the age of 12, and since inception he has performed with numerous visiting bands, such as the late John Delafose, his son, Geno Delafose, and many local Zydeco and Cajun bands. Thierry effortlessly moves through the single row, double row, triple row and piano key accordions, as well as displaying talent on the bass guitar, rhythm guitar and drums. Thanks to his parents and grandparents influences, Thierry sings traditional songs in English and Creole French. He is a gifted composer and song-writer as well. The Washington Post called Andre a “master” at “pumping out fast, funky rhythms on an instrument not usually associated with earthy syncopation.” Even the San Francisco Bay Area presented Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic with the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame award for “Best Zydeco Group” in 2008. At only 32 years old, he is already a legend.
