Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers

I first watched this band 3 weeks ago in New Orleans at a private party at the The House of Blues.  They were playing in the upstairs room at the back and I ‘chanced’ upon them and stayed all evening.  I checked their website when I cam back to Holland and saw that they were playing in Zwolle (of all fucking places) last night.  So K and I went with our neighbor friends to the Blues Night at the Odeon Theatre.  The first 2 acts were ok, nothing special but then these guys came on.  AMAZING!!!!!!    I haven’t had as much fun watching live music since Talking Heads.  Extremely different music but holy christ do these guys have energy, presence, power and just fantastic music.

If you ever, ever get the chance to see them, do not hesitate they will blow you away.  We all agreed that if the opportunity arises the 4 of us will take a holiday to the US just to see them in concert.  They are that good!

(the sound quality of this clip is not great but you will get sense of how good they are)
