Terrance Simien and The Zydeco Experience – New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, LA

Terrance Simien is a Grammy Award winning Zydeco musician from Louisiana and a local favorite whose music was even featured in the Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” His high energy set complimented by his great voice and accordion skills and his band, the Zydeco Experience, got the crowd dancing and singing.

As a special treat, Susan Cowsill joined the band and performed a solo version of “To Sir, with Love,” complete with Cowsill’s mouthing of the orchestral parts. It was at this performance that we realized that no matter how popular the band is on the big stage, the real action at Jazz Fest is happening wherever a Zydeco band is playing.
