Experience The Hudson Valley

Buckwheat Zydeco @ Hudson Valley Paramount Saturday, Feb. 21

Ain’t no party like a zydeco party, and this weekend Peekskill’s Hudson Valley Paramount theater is bringing the Bayou north to heat things up with the Louisiana’s squeezebox legend Buckwheat Zydeco. And when we say “legend,” we don’t exaggerate. With the title track “On A Night Like This” of his groundbreaking first Island Records album, Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural Jr. singlehandedly brought the unique sound of zydeco into the musical mainstream in 1987. (It was also the first major-label zydeco record, and a Grammy nominee.) No other zydeco artist has come close to selling as many records or exposing the music to more people around the world.

Opening the show is the Hudson Valley’s own Professor Louie and The Crowmatix — Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurtwitz and his fantastic world-traveled blues, rock, R&B, gospel and folk band.
