Annual Mardi Gras Dance Benefit featuring Zydeco Hipsters Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble
KGNU-CFCZs Annual Mardi Gras Dance Benefit Kicks off the Mardi Gras Season With Zydeco Hipsters Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble

KGNU Community Radio and Colorado Friends of Cajun-Zydeco Music and Dance (CFCZ) celebrate Mardi Gras nice and early this year with an evening of revelry, music, and dancing featuring Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble on Saturday, February 1, 2020.  Our zydeco dance lesson starts at 7:00 p.m., music at 8:00 p.m., and doors are at 6:30 p.m. The Avalon Ballrooms big dance floor will be vibrating and shaking with enthusiasm at this annual Mardi Gras event.

Like many great zydeco musicians, Curley Taylor was born to play zydeco. His professional career began at age 16 drumming in his father's band, Jude Taylor and the Burning Flames. Fast forward a few years later and Curley has drummed with many South Louisiana greats like Steve Riley, CC Adcock, and the legendary Lil Buck Senegal. While touring with CJ Chenier, son of zydeco's founding father Clifton Chenier, Curley learned to play the accordion. Eventually, he assembled his own aggregation and recorded his 2003 auspicious debut Country Boy. Curley has become known coast to coast for his fiery, hip brand of zydeco. His music represents a crossroads between rural Creole life and modern urban hipness thats enjoyed by young and old alike.

Oskar Blues will provide delicious Cajun fare for purchase. Wine & beer will be available for purchase and well have complimentary King Cake. As always, there will be a Mardi Gras costume contest with prizes. Be sure to shine and win the more outrageous the better! And as our Mardi Gras party is nice and early this year, you can premier your costume with us!

This event benefits KGNU Community Radio and CFCZ.  The Colorado Friends of Cajun-Zydeco Music and Dance is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring Louisiana French culture, music and dance to the Front Range.  More information is available at
