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.

Paul Daigle first picked up an accordion when he was ten years old - and never looked back. Known as the driving force in the bands Cajun Gold and Family Gold (with his sons), as well as a respected member of Savoir Faire, Paul knows good music, and plays it with joy and passion. For this trip to Atlanta, he will be accompanied by Jason Frey on fiddle. Mark Latiolais, who plays with both Cajun Gold and Jason Frey will be on guitar. Rounding out the quartet is Mark Edmonson - from Savoir Faire - on drums. Paul Daigle sure does have some talented friends! You may have seen Jason at Fred's Lounge on a trip to Louisiana on a Saturday morning. Thanks to Paul for putting Jason in the passenger's seat!
