Event Details

Clayton Joseph Chenier is Creole music royalty. His father,
the legendary Clifton Chenier, invented the style of music we know today as
Zydeco and was the first Creole musician to be recognized with a Grammy Award.
Enjoy an evening that brings the Louisiana dancehall experience to Warren, as
the late “King of Zydeco” Clifton Chenier is celebrated by his son C.J!

Attending a C.J. Chenier show is a transformative
experience. You may come in tired and beat up just from living in this world –
but you will leave renewed and happy.
And that is the promise C.J. makes, “You can’t come to my show and stay
unhappy. You’re going to break a smile before too long. This is happy music.” C.J.
performs with The Red Hot Louisiana Band as a Zydeco/Blues and Jam Band. He has
a moving and dynamic solo storytelling and musical show outlining the history
of the Chenier involvement in Zydeco music.

“Fifty years have passed in a flash,” says Texas-born,
Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist Marcia Ball of her long and
storied career. Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won
worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale
roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking
Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues
have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world.

New frontiers fit nicely atop the boundary breaking career
of singer songwriter and slide guitar icon Sonny Landreth. Landreth apprenticed
with zydeco king Clifton Cheniers Red Hot Louisiana Band and a host of other
accomplished roots artists. Eric Clapton says, Sonny Landreth is probably the
most underestimated musician on the planet, and also probably one of the most advanced.
Landreth’s innovative guitar techniques have opened doors to new sonic textures
and a complex tonal vocabulary.
