MASS MoCA presents C.J Chenier, one of the Louisiana bayou’s favorite sons. He brings The Red Hot Louisiana Band in for a foot stomping dance party of epic proportions. Chenier, whom Billboard called “the heir to the zydeco throne,” is widely regarded as one of the genre’s best singers and live performers: as the Boston Globe said, he “attacks the accordion with the tension and drive of James Brown…creating contemporary, turbo-charged dance music.”
Dance instruction arranged by Jacob’s Pillow. Presented as part of the Williamstown Jazz Festival.
