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.

The Revelers is a new Cajun band, composed of old Cajun friends. Founded by members of Pine Leaf Boys and Red Stick Ramblers, these musicians are some of Louisiana's best. Their contagious approach and danceable rhythms are making music and dance lovers alike stand up and take notice. Hollywood has noticed too - they were on the 2011 season finale of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, and were the featured musicians for the third and fourth seasons of HBO's Treme. Atlanta native Daniel Coolik is the fiddle player, and was featured in David Greely's Fiddler's on the Bayou program a couple of years ago. For more information on this wonderful band, visit The Revelers. Authentic Cajun food for sale from Fusions Catering. Please Note:No Bar.
