We have asked Stanley to give us an extra dollop of Hammond B-3 playing in this season opening show.
Buckwheat Zydeco won the Grammy for Best Cajun and Zydeco album for Lay Your Burden Down. A national treasure of Creole music, Stanley Dural knows how to get the house up and moving. In his last 2 appearances at Gild Hall he led the youngest attenders in line dances across the stage to the delight of all. If you've seen a Buckwheat show, you know what to expect: rocking, stomping, good time Creole party music. If you haven't seen Buckwheat Zydeco live, you're missing one of the music world's most exciting and fun performers. Don't just take our word for it:
"One of his finest everâ¦Have Mercy! Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural was so determined to have Buckwheat Zydeco's Trouble (originally released on Atlantic in 1997) promoted properly that he formed his own label, the first major zydeco artist ever to do so. So far, it seems to be paying off." - Amazon
Living Blues Magazine: "A zydeco accordionist and a hot band playing at the top of their gameâ¦ plays like Buckwheat's answer to the contemporary button-accordion players. When he opens with a dexterous run along the keys, it's as if to demonstrate that anything they can do, he can do betterâ¦ Buckwheat's nine originals are delivered with crisp horn arrangements, and Lee Allen Zeno's inventive bass work again demonstrates that he is one of the most underrated bassists in the fieldâ¦ On âTroubleâ, Buckwheat shows that his own musical memory runs deep and still flows into unexpected places."
