In Louisiana in the early 1950s, traditional Cajun and Creole music collided with the rocking Rhythm and Blues sounds that were sweeping the country, and a new style of music emerged. It was christened Zydeco, from a song popularized by Zydeco pioneer Clifton Chenier. River City Slim & The Zydeco Hogs bring the exuberant sounds of the steamy bayous of southwestern Louisiana to the hills of New England. The Zydeco Hogs cook up a spicy musical gumbo that combines the traditional sounds of the button accordion and washboard with a driving, syncopated beat.

"When The Zydeco Hogs play the air is filled with the spirit of Louisiana French music. You feel the ragged joy of Cajun two-steps and Zydeco blues. You can almost smell the garlic and the stewing oysters, the humidity rises a few points and suddenly this isn't Connecticut anymore." -- Ed McKeon, New Britain (CT) Herald River City Slim & The Zydeco Hogs perform the spirited blend of Cajun, Creole, and rhythm & blues music that is Zydeco. People come from all over New England for the soulful, pulsating, uplifting music -- Brenda Milley, Arlington (MA) Advocate Their tight instrumentation, impressive vocals and harmonies, and excellent interpretations of traditional material clearly make them one of the premier non-Louisiana based Zydeco bands. -- K-Paule, ZydecoRoad.com Phenomenal. Rich in tradition. Deep in roots exploration. Ripe with intensity. -- Bruce Handelman, Rochester (NY) Zydeco/Cajun Network
