Beads and bling: It's a Mardi Gras thing
Music by the Bay Live celebrates Mardi Gras season with Loco Zydeco, a six-person, high energy, Canadian Zydeco band, based in Toronto, Ontario.
Winning over enthusiastic crowds with an energetic blend of contemporary and traditional Zydeco,
they have created a unique take on Louisiana's most exciting musical export, in all it's toe-tapping, hip-shaking glory.
Loco Zydeco’s first two albums "Yeah, You Right, Eh!" (released independently in the fall of 2003,) and
"This Great White North, Eh!" (released by Flaming Cheese Records in the fall of 2006,) have enjoyed commercial, community and college radio play across North America. Their third album, "Time To Turn The Key," was released by Flaming Cheese Records in October 2008, and has enjoyed both North American & European airplay. Their latest album, “Loco Zydeco” was released in 2017, by Squirrel Head Music.
July 12th, 2002 marked Loco Zydeco’s debut at The Toronto International BBQ & Blues Fest. Since then they have energized audiences and made new fans at major festivals across Ontario and into Quebec and New Brunswick. Electrifying performances have solidified their reputation as one of Canada’s most entertaining Zydeco bands, with shows often becoming a free for all of audience participation. Extra rubboards are always available for anyone adventurous enough to join the band on stage
In 2023, Loco Zydeco will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album
