Event Details

Includes Cajun/Zydeco dance lesson at 8 pm.

The hardworking Mark St. Mary Louisiana Blues & Zydeco Band has been a favorite of Cajun/zydeco festival crowds for years. St. Mary and company were voted best zydeco band of 2007 by the Bay Area Blues Society, and he was named the Delta King at the Isleton Crawfish Festival. St. Mary began playing accordion when he was 12, inspired originally by “King of Zydeco” Clifton Chenier. Singing in English and Creole French, St. Mary leads his band through original songs including “St. Mary Special” and “Moi Seado (My Syrup),” interspersed with dance floor favorites from Chenier’s “I’m Coming Home” and the classic Harry Choates version of “Jolie Blon” to Rockin’ Sidney’s “Don’t Mess with My Toot Toot.” The quintet features some of the finest Cajun and zydeco players of Northern California, playing waltzes, two-steps, line dances, and flat-foot zydeco.St. Mary’s band usually features Jason Thierry on rubboard and vocals, lead guitarist Jim Scott, bass by either Dana Mandell or David Rees, and drums by Steve Namle or Les Bloch.
