Uptown Live Presents Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience
May 29, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
One of zydeco’s most soulful vocalists and fieriest accordionists, Terrance Simien was also among the music’s most pop-oriented artists, infusing his sound with elements of R&B, funk, gospel, and reggae. As Simien evolves to create a fusion of sound like no other, both critics and fans agree that he is taking his beloved zydeco music to a new level and into a larger music world, the celebrating circles of American roots music. He continues to raise the standards for his genre by establishing himself as a formidable songwriter and an absolutely astonishing singer, who evokes comparisons to Sam Cooke and Aaron Neville. He is one of the most sought after artists in roots music today.
