EARLY SUNDAY SHOW

 We are proud to announce "Swamp Stomp" is back. It's been several years since we had Swamp Music brought in from Southwestern Louisiana. The Galley/Adelphia Music Hall, 203 Second Street, Marietta, has agreed to open up just for us on Sunday, November 13 with Jeffrey Broussard & The Zydeco Cowboys performing. The band is one of the top Zydeco acts touring today.  We booked  them on a routing date on a Sunday for a reasonable price.
 
The Galley has agreed to a limited menu which will include some Cajun specials. Doors open at 4 PM, dance  instruction starts at 4:30 PM and showtime is 5 PM. Jeffery and his band will perform two 75 minute sets. We need your support for this show so we can continue to bring you these most desirable art forms. If you have never been to the Galley/Adelphia Music Hall, you will be impressed with the venue. It was built as a music venue and not an afterthought.

Cover charge is $15 per person or $25 per couple. Advance tickets may be purchased at The Galley, or by calling 740-374-8278, or by going online to "thegalleymarietta.com."  Tickets will also be offered at the door.  For more information call Cobbler John afternoons and evenings at 740-376-0222.

WHAT IS ZYDECO? 

 
Zydeco is a form of uniquely American roots or folk music. It evolved in southwest Louisiana in the early 19th century from forms of "la la" Creole music. The rural Creoles of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas still sing in Louisiana Creole French. Zydeco combines elements of an even older American musical style which began in the late 1700s: Cajun music, which comprises French fiddle tunes, Irish Celtic fiddle tunes, German button accordion, Latin rhythms, and Appalachian styles. Zydeco music was born in the late 1860s as a blend of Cajun music and two other "new" American music styles: blues and rhythm and blues. Haitian rhythms were also added, as Haitian natives moved to Louisiana to help harvest the new cash crop - sugarcane. Zydeco (French, from the phrase: "Les haricots ne sont pas salés", means "the snap beans aren't salty". This phrase is a colloquial expression that means 'I have no spicy news for you.'[citation needed] It has alternatively been referred to as meaning "I'm so poor, I can't afford any salt meat for the beans." When spoken in the regional French, it is spoken thus: "leh-zy-dee-co sohn pah salay...") --Thank you Wikipedia  
zydeco music is a relatively new genre of world music. It is the shared music of the Cajuns and the Creoles, as well as blues, jure' (syncopated a cappella religious songs), and in more recent years, zydeco has taken many cues from R&B and even hip-hop, proving that it's a constantly evolving genre.Zydeco is a form of uniquely American roots or folk music.
