Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience

Date

Aug 25, 2017
08:15pm – 10:30pm

Location
Hoover Auditorium

Honoring American roots music in the Southern Creole tradition, Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience will bring their unique show to Lakeside for the first time.

An eighth generation Louisiana Creole, Simien has been performing his indigenous Zydeco roots music for more than 30 years, making him one of the most well-respected and accomplished artists in American roots music of this generation.

Born in 1965, Simien has been greatly influenced by musicians of that era, including Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel.

At age 18, Simien began touring professionally. Two years later, he had shared the stage with Fats Domino and Sarah Vaughn at the Bern Jazz Festival. From there, his career took off.

Simien has remained an important part of Zydeco music history, becoming a mentor to the next generation of performers as the previous generation was to him.

Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience have been at the center of many achievements for their genre of music. In 2006, they became the first Zydeco artists to perform in Cuba for the U.S. State Department.

The band also earned two Grammy Awards. Their first was awarded in 2008, which was the first Grammy Award in Zydeco music since Rockin’ Sidney Simien received one in 1985. They received their second Grammy in 2014.

Simien and his band have performed and recorded with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Dave Matthews Band and many more.

Their music has been widely featured in TV commercials and a dozen or more films including the popular 2012 film, “The Lucky One” starring Zac Efron in which they performed their song “Dance Everyday” as well as Simien’s take on the zydeco standard, “Uncle Bud.”

Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience have traveled the world bringing their unique music to audiences of all ages. They have performed more than 7,000 concerts in nearly 45 countries.
