Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys features the accordion mastery and soulful vocals of front man Jeffery Broussard, from the legendary band, Zydeco Force. The band delivers great, pack-the-floor renditions of Creole classics as well as their own brand of contemporary Zydeco. Early Creole music, as played by legends Canray Fontenot on fiddle and Jeffery’s father, accordion player Delton Broussard, is experiencing a well-deserved resurgence of interest in Louisiana today. Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys are presenting their music with contemporary flair and expertise.
“Jeffery Broussard has long been respected as one of the greatest accordion players to ever
grace our beautiful Creole culture and for that matter the world.” — Don Cravins, Sr., Mayor of Opelousas, LA, Zydeco Capital of the World
