Jet Set Zydeco

by | Country

Austin, Texas hasnt been the same since Jet Set Zydeco hit the scene in the Spring of 1998. The bands unique pop-inflected zydeco has kept everyone dancing. Local nightclubs, weddings and corporate parties–Jet Set Zydeco has been eager to please these partying crowds across Austin for nearly two years. No wonder their official motto is “Music for the Sitting-Still Impaired”.

Jet Set Zydeco has established itself in the Austin music scene, playing at Antones, Continental Club, Liberty Lunch, Threadgills, World Headquarters, Stubbs, Black Cat Lounge, Electric Lounge, and Central Market. One of their most memorable shows was “The Night of the Living Accordion” at Threadgills when Jet Set Zydeco shared the bill with Grammy winning accordionist Joel Guzman and Cajun music prodigy Kevin Naquin.

Jet Set Zydecos music is influenced and rooted in the great musicians from Southern Louisiana, including Boozoo Chavis, Geno Delafose, Beau Jocque, and Zydeco Force. Yet with their high energy, Zydeco based pop has a sound all its own. In Austin, they have shared the bill with Brave Combo, Gluf Coast Playboys, Los Aztex, Rosie Ledet, Bayou Beaujolais, Hot Club of Cowtown, Kevin Naquin, & the Ossun Playboys, and Chapattal.

Jet Set Zydeco plans include taking its motto and zydeco music on the road int Texas and Lousiana. You will hear more from them… and when you do, don forget to put on your dancing shoes.
