The Bayou Alligators are a band from Germany that plays Zydeco and Roots-Music as well as Rythm&Blues and Rock’n’Roll tunes with that special Southern Louisiana feel to it. The band emerged out of a highly succsessful group named „The Zydeco Alligators“, which toured extensively throughout Germany and Europe for seven years and released two CDs. They won the Blues Award of the International Bluesfestival of Dresden (2002) and the European Cajun&Zydeco Award (2004). They shared stages with highly acclaimed artists such as Popa Chubby, Ana Popovic, John Hammond Jr., Gwyn Ashton, Candy Dulfer and The NDR Bigband among others. They played festivals in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Slovakia and the Chechz Republic.

They played on ships, on the streets, in caves 100 meters below ground and on mountain tops. Their goal was, still is and will always be entertaining listeners and making people dance! The band regrouped in 2008, came back out of the „swampy bayous“ and now offers a broader range of styles from Cajun to Nouveau Zydeco and Rock’n’Roll tunes. The change can be heard since the main instrument was switched to the diatonic cajun accordion. Along with that come collaborations with other instrumentalists such as Dobro-Player Lubos Bena (Slovakia) or harp player Matej Ptaszek from Prague (CZ). The Bayou Alligators are pleased to present a new program, which, just as before, is characterized by enthusiasm, talent, and above all lively and authentic Zydeco music.

In their music, which, apart from their original pieces and arrangements, also includes music by such well-known Zydeco musicians like C.J. Chenier, Geno Delafose, and Chubby Carrier, the Alligators don’t try simply to copy existing works. Zydeco, rhythmic music from the French-speaking Creole culture in southwest Louisiana, that’s fun to dance to, is played on accordions and washboards, and has its roots in Blues and Rhythm & Blues music. The five musicians, all accomplished musicians of German Blues and the Folk Rock scene place more value upon putting their own ideas into practice, as well as fun, which is what this music is all about.
