About CJ Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band

C.J. Chenier, son of the ‘King of Zydeco’ Clifton Chenier, joined his father’s Red-Hot Louisiana Band playing saxophone at the age of 21. After Clifton’s death in 1987, C.J. picked up the accordion and took charge of his father’s ministry – to spread the word of Zydeco music to the world. Since then, Chenier has pushed the genre to new heights with his virtuosity. The Boston Globe has called him “the crown prince of zydeco,” and Living Blues magazine hails him as “the best living zydeco singer and accordionist.” His musical style ranges from the traditional Zydeco of Clifton Chenier right on up to modern funk with healthy doses of blues, R&B, swamp pop and even country. C.J.’s total mastery of the accordion combined with his rich, satisfying voice are the driving forces behind this power-house zydeco band.

What Other People Have Been Saying...

“contemporary, turbo-charged dance music.” -Boston Globe

“C.J. is arguably zydeco’s best singer, with an especially deep, richly resonant voice that ignites the songs’ emotional content alongside the fiery rhythms and rampaging accordion… unbridled passion.” Rick Mason, City Pages
