    • C.J. Chenier was born into the musical tradition of southwest Louisiana and Texas Zydeco, a chugging, accordion-led blend of French Creole and African-derived influences. He's the son of great Zydeco king Clifton Chenier, the first Grammy Award winning musician of his genre. C.J. studied music at Texas Southern University and then  joined his father's legendary Red Hot Louisiana Band for "grad school," assuming leadership of the band after his father's death in 1987. Free dance lesson from Larry Kaufman! A quick low-pressure intro to partner dancing zydeco style, with some swing and waltz plus the fun zydeco line dance - the Cupid Shuffle - will be taught and danced during the break.
