ACADIANA takes its name from a twenty-two parish region of southern Louisiana, home to the nation's largest Cajun and Creole population and the cradle of Cajun & Zydeco music and cuisine. This band has been evolving since 1992 playing the music of Louisiana greats like Buckwheat Zydeco, Clifton Chenier, Boozoo Chavis, Beausoleil John Delafose, Bruce Daigrepont and many more. With these influences, Acadiana blends its original songs and style with traditional and contemporary cajun/zydeco music. Popular throughout California and led by band leader Teresa Russell, Acadiana has been invited back year after year to major venues like the Strawberry Festival and the Simi Valley and Long Beach Cajun Festivals entertaining audiences with their playful spirit and infectious dance grooves … and an occasional Mardi Gras style parade. Acadiana recently appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show for the 2006 Mardi Gras Celebration. Acadiana’s show is a high energy and festive experience for all ages to enjoy. Their latest CD release is entitled Fiddle Around At The Mardi Gras which includes well crafted original material as well as popular traditional tunes.
