Porchdogs Cajun Zydeco Band

Porchdogs Cajun Zydeco Band


Formed in 1992 in Orlando, Florida by Andy Burr (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Jimmy Miller (bass, vocals), and Ric Scoles (banjo), the band originally specialized in folk, bluegrass, and hillbilly music. The Porchdogs took on its present character when Greg Taillon (accordion, vocals) joined up, bringing along his interest in the spicy Cajun and zydeco music of Louisiana. Miller and Scoles departed not long thereafter, and the group has specialized in Cajun and zydeco ever since. Read more on Last.fm
Formed in 1992 in Orlando, Florida by Andy Burr (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Jimmy Miller (bass, vocals), and Ric Scoles (banjo), the band originally specialized in folk, bluegrass, and hillbilly music. The Porchdogs took on its present character when Greg Taillon (accordion, vocals) joined up, bringing along his interest in the spicy Cajun and zydeco music of Louisiana. Miller and Scoles departed not long thereafter, and the group has specialized in Cajun and zydeco ever since. Along the way, the band has independently released at least seven albums. They are the only group (national, regional, or 'local') to have performed every year at the long-running but now-defunct Fort Lauderdale Cajun-Zydeco Crawfish Festival, which became, during its 16-year run, the largest festival of its type in the US.

The band performs approximately 100 dates annually at nightclubs, festivals, and private events throughout Florida. Along with repeat gigs at Central Florida theme parks (Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Cypress Gardens, Silver Springs), the band has performed daily five of the years since 1993 at the Florida State Fair, and daily (20 days a year since 1999) at the Iron Horse Saloon in Daytona Beach during Bike Week and Biketoberfest. In addition to Burr and Taillon, the group often includes some of the following musicians: Jessy Daumen (fiddle), Renee Riddle (fiddle), Larry Dolamore (bass), Eddie Riddle (bass), Achille DeSanctis (bass); and any of numerous drummers. The band has two websites: www.porchdogs.net and www.theporchdogs.com. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
