“Ain’t no party like a Chubby party” and don’t we know it! Grammy Award winner Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band return to Springing the Blues as our headliner for Friday night, April 7. Once the accordion-playing virtuoso grabs the mic and takes to the stage with his band mates, audiences are treated to a show like no other. Chubby’s sound is infectious — a concoction of blues, 70s funk, rock and roll, and good ole’ zydeco flavor — and makes even the most timid folks get their feet moving!
“Zydeco Junkie” earned a Grammy Award in 2011 as Best Zydeco or Cajun album. In addition to the Grammy, the album was named as one of Offbeat magazine’s Best of the Beat, earning Best Zydeco Album for 2011.
Chubby is a prince of zydeco royalty. His father (Roy Carrier), grandfather (Warren Carrier) and cousins (Bebe and Calvin Carrier) are zydeco legends. For more than 20 years, Chubby and his band have toured and played their upbeat zydeco sound around the world. They’ve performed at the Chicago Blues Festival, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Cajun and Zydeco Festival (Ft. Lauderdale) and the Montreaux Jazz Fest (Switzerland).
