Explosive Zydeco Soul
Dwayne was featured in the Star Tribune "Big Gigs" this week: Unlike his washboard-scratching brother Rockin’ Dopsie Jr., Dwayne Dopsie has the accordion-squeezing talent that made his late father, Rockin’ Dopsie, a near-rival to Clifton Chenier. The Lafayette, La.-bred zydeco heir, 35, was even named best accordion player last year by New Orleans’ premier music rag Downbeat. Like all the Dopsies, he fronts a mighty good-timey band, the Zydeco Hellraisers, who will challenge the Dakota’s lack of dance space. (8 p.m. Sat., Dakota Jazz Club, $20.)
