Cajun and Zydeco dance enthusiasts who want to keep the music of Louisiana alive and thriving in Atlanta have joyfully formed the Atlanta Cajun Zydeco Association. Everybody loves a party! And what better way to “Let the Good Times Roll” than with a Cajun two-step or a Zydeco syncopated slide? If you play well with others and are looking for the chance to get your groove on, this is the place for you. Welcome. Links to recent stories describing the fun are below.

Welcome 2015! For the first dance of the new year, it's only fitting that we would invite Zydeco T, Atlanta's own hometown Zydeco band. They've been playing at Louisiana themed restaurants, house parties, festivals, and may be the first Zydeco band that many ACZA dancers heard. Their music and energy is infectious. Favorite songs include Popcorn , and Cornbread. They've been playing all spring & summer at Pappadeaux, and are coming back to ACZA to play for the fans who love them the best. Come on out and show them your love!! For more information about this band, visit Zydeco T .
