A Louisiana Frenchman, accordionist, and singer Andrew Carriere bring a long family tradition into his playing. His father was the legendary Creole fiddler “Bebe” Carriere. Carriere is a highly sought-after singer and accordion player in the West Coast Cajun music scene.
Fiddler, accordionist, and singer Andre Nigoghossian, got his first taste of Cajun & Zydeco music in college. The infectious grooves of la musique de la Sud de La Louisiane made a lasting impression, and he’s quickly becoming one of the most sought-after musicians in the Bay Area Cajun scene.
Canadian, Tom Stewart, discovered the Cajun/Zydeco community in 2005. He is currently one of the go-to rhythm guitarists in the Bay Area’s Cajun band community and loves keeping the rhythm for The California Blue Runners!
Haywood Douresseau, another Louisiana Frenchman, developed an interest in Zydeco at an early age. Ten years ago, he went from dancer to musician as a scrubboard player and manager. Today, he rubs the board for The California Blue Runners as well as with other local bands.
David ""Killer"" Hymowitz
Killer has been the premier percussionist in the Cajun/Zydeco music scene for the past 30 years. He’s played with every notable Cajun band in the Bay Area in that time. Fortunately, he loves CBR as much as we love him!
