Chubby Carrier and the
Bayou Swamp Band
Zydeco is the way to go
This band was the delight I expected it to be. There is not nearly enough Swamp Pop around this area. Let me know where it is, and I’ll be there.
I didn’t get to visit with the musicians, so I can’t tell you their stories. Here are the shots I got at Frog Island in June of 1998:
Chubby Carrier himself.
The drummer for this fine band is Trey Landry.
Guess who found this page? Saundra Gaar, email Gaarlic@aol.com, who happens to be married to this musician, John Garr, lead guitar.
Say hello to Zydeco Mike Chaisson, percussion.
Big, big blue drums!
Chubby Carrier’s accordion.
Zydeco Mike’s percussion stuff 🙂
The band’s website is at www.swampfunk.com and it has the latest tourdate info. It’s also on www.intrepidartists.com.
Why not send in your reviews, opinions or praise for the bands at Frog Island? I obviously am not informed enough to talk about them…. so you are most welcome to email me. Tell me if I can include your name and email address with your comments.
All that technical Web Stuff
Visit my friends at Cajun Net, dawlin’.
Or you could go see my pages for my bayou-based Louisiana nephew’s band, Acid Bath. It’s way different from anything you heard at Frog Island and will probably offend 99% of all people with ears. "He’s the baby, gotta love him!"
