This band, an Atlanta favorite, is hard to put into just one category. Creole music is bluesier than Cajun music, and more melody-driven than Zydeco. Dennis learned to play fiddle from some of the great Creole fiddlers - Roy Boyer and Conray Fontenot. He's also studied with Cajun fiddler Hadley Castille, and Western Swing fiddler Wade Ray. While his fiddle playing is diverse and top notch, it is the strength and passion of his vocals that grabs your attention. For more information about Dennis and his bands, visit Dennis Stroughmatt & Creole Stomp,. Authentic Cajun food for sale from Fusions Catering From 6 to 9 & Cash Bar.
