Ruben’s been immersed in music his WHOLE life, Tejano & Creole Zydeco. Father’s lineage, rich with Grammy Winning Tejano artists. Mother’s lineage … Creole had the gravitational pull that drew him up on stage, age of 10, playing scrubboard with his Uncle Leroy Thomas.

Ruben was ensnared, by age 15 he hit the road playing professionally with his Uncle Leroy, CJ Chenier and finally Andre Thierry, his musical idol and mentor in San Fran Bay area.

Ruben never looked back, Ruben knew his destiny. On stage playing Zydeco – balancing fundamental respect for the traditional sounds and dance grooves … with a willingness to take Zydeco in fresh directions absorbing rhythmic and melodic edges from the cultures and generations he’s immersed in. Come to the Harmony House on September 21 and get swept up in the “Zydeco Re-Evolution”!!

QUICK BIO - Houston native, Ruben Moreno, is the multi-instrumentalist front man for Ruben Moreno and Zydeco Re-Evolution. Ruben’s first appearance on stage was at the age of 10 as washboard player for Leroy Thomas at the grand opening of The Continental Club in Houston. At 13 he was the opening act for Roy Carrier and has continued to play with many of today’s top Zydeco artists on stages across the country, from the New Orleans Jazz Fest with C.J. Chenier to the Waldorf Astoria in New York with Andre Thierry. An award-winning musician on washboard and emerging accordionist, Moreno's music brings the sounds of traditional Zydeco to the mainstream.

In Ruben’s own words:

“I know my beliefs and ideas are quite different from other Zydeco artists but change is something you can’t get away from. It’s only a matter of time before Zydeco music and Creole culture will be used to reach other people, to bring up issues that we face nowadays in this country and in this world. That’s what I want to do; I want to use this music. I idolize Martin Luther King Jr., Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix because they were activists of peace, who used the tools they were good at, whether it was the church, poetry, or music, to speak positive words. I know I can use my own tools, too: I can use my accordion, my band, my music, my words, and my form of art to do what they did, advocate for a world of positive change.”

“This is the birth of Zydeco Re-Evolution, the evolution of a culture and music ... I’ve come a long way and there’s no turning back now. I’m going to keep going and keep pushing myself to be the best I can be because I know life is going to get better. Change is inevitable and all we can do is change right along with it. Don’t doubt yourself that you can be the best because it is all up to you, your life is how you wish it to be, don’t let yourself down.”

“Peace, Love, and Honky Tonk!”
