Description

One of the spiciest zydeco bands in America, Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe will turn any event into a full-fledged Mardi Gras party! Bandleader Dikki Du (Troy Carrier) was born to play zydeco. Son of the legendary and much loved accordionist, Roy Carrier, and brother of world-renowned Grammy winning Zydeco artist, Chubby Carrier.

Troy’s father, Roy Carrier, helped spread the love of Zydeco by touring constantly throughout the USA packing the shows with an infectious one-two punch, his warm engaging joyful personality combined with his soulful blues driven Zydeco groove. Roy passed through Rochester many times, culminating in the famed Showdown in Flower Town, a Blues-Zydeco double bill with Joe Beard in 2008. Ever since Roy passed in 2010, his sons, Troy and, Grammy winning, Chubby Carrier have been carrying the torch of Blues-Soul Zydeco ... Roy’s looking down from above smiling with pride.

DIKKI DU'S STYLE & SOUND
After learning the accordion, Troy created his own band to play originals and zydeco-flavored versions of party staples like "Mustang Sally" and "Fire." He takes songs from classic zydeco and turns the inside out with fresh and funky renditions driving it to the next level. The band's funky instrumentals, searing guitar, syncopated rhythms, and intricate accordion work push the frontiers of zydeco, flavored with Troy’s famous Louisiana charm, have made them one of the most popular festival and party bands in the country. They dig what they do, and because they do, you will too.

"Troy exhibits that Carrier touch with jumping riffs, pounding stops, and constant jukin' that bounces all over the map. Carrier learned his button box well with plenty of tricky dicky (no pun intended) dazzling, which is the catalyst for making the arrangements hop." -- music critic Dan Willging
