The Zyderythmics

The Zyderythmics are causing Zydeco fans everywhere to get down on the floor and groove. Their debut at Bury Louisiana Festival in November 2003 caused Chris Hall (of Swampmusic and Paul McCartney Band fame) to comment "One of the finest debuts I have seen by a band in the UK". Since then they have been described as "brilliant", "fantastic", and from the promoters of the Upton Swamp Festival "triumphant". Led and inspired by Phil Underwood, they storm through numbers from Chris Ardoin, Clifton Chenier, Geno Delafose, Boozoo Chavis, and other great Zydeco players from Louisiana, and even manage to fit in a few of their own. You can’t sit down when the Zyderythmics are on stage!
