GREAT FLOODRELIEF BENEFIT CONCERT – Saturday Sept 17th !!!
RCZN’s LAUNCH of our 15th ANNIVERSARY season … with "Zydeco Radio" … has morphed into a Flood Relief Benefit Concert to address the burgeoning needs of the people of Louisiana in the face of The Great Flood of 2016.
All proceeds from the show’s Raffle will be going to Flood Relief. RCZN is in the process of deciding which “Flood Relief” organization best meets our criteria for direct aid to the people in need in Acadiana … stay tuned for details!!!

“Zydeco Radio” is THE PERFECT band to headline this Benefit Concert. Not only is “Zydeco Radio” a dynamic emerging Zydeco band from the heart and soul of Zydeco Country, Lafayette LA, the band’s Scrubboard player Trent Oubre has offered up a painting, “Preserve”, inspired by the Great Flood, as a Flood Relief donation product. These young “Cajun” musicians are doing their part to “Preserve” one of the many treasures of SW Louisiana by playing some of the best Kick@ss Zydeco dance music you could ever hear juking out of a “Zydeco Radio”!!!

BAND BIO: When “Zydeco Radio” formed they chose to “tune into” the deeply rooted in-the-pocket groove of Beau Jocque and Zydeco Force, seminal Zydeco bands of the 90’s … interesting choice for a young krewe of Cajun born musicians. They’ve further infused their sound with New Orleans-style funk/blues & ‘60s soul, citing Allen Toussaint & The Meters as added inspiration. “All of us being from this region and growing up around Zydeco music. The most important element is playing stuff people can dance to.”

Howdy my Finger Lakes Zydeco peeps. Hope you can make RCZN’s Series Kick Off show on Sep 17 with “Zydeco Radio”. Not only that we are raising much needed funds for communities in SW Louisiana impacted by The Great Storm of 2016. Even though the storm didn’t pack the media punch that many Hurricanes do, the flood has devastated whole communities and thousands of people. It’s time to help! It’s time to dance!! It’s time to tune into “Zydeco Radio”!!! And ... anything you can do to help spread the word is greatly appreciated!!!

Through RCZN you’ll have 2 options to donate money, both in advance and at the Zydeco Radio show on Sept 17th. 1) Acadiana Disaster Response Fund (http://www.cfacadiana.org/resources/CFA-revives-Rise-Up-for-flood-relief) – A tax deductible fund organized by the Community Foundation of Acadiana (CFA). CFA is working closely with federal, state and local agencies as well as nonprofit organizations and churches to people and organizations whose needs are falling through the cracks and deliver much needed relief. Donate directly to CFA, with whom RCZN will work with to track our community’s contributions. a. DONATE NOW to Acadiana Disaster Response Fund b. Donations to RCZN’s RAFFLE at the show will go directly to Flood Relief 2) Purchase a copy of “Preserve” – Zydeco Radio’s scrubboard player, Trent Oubre has donated the image of his painting, “Preserve”, inspired by the Great Flood, as a Flood Relief donation product. All funds (other than shipping) donated to CFA’s Acadiana Disaster Response Fund. They’ve sold out the initial 300 printing and are in the process of ramping up another batch and a new online purchase site. RCZN will have a link on Our Website as soon as it’s available. And, if Trent has any left at the show, we’ll certainly have them for sale.
