About Jeffery
It's a family trade and there are few families more closely associated with zydeco than the Broussards. Jeffery Broussard (born March 10, 1967) was just 8 years old when he debuted on drums in his father's band, Delton Broussard and the Lawtell Playboys. In the decades since, Jeffery Broussard has been a torchbearer for zydeco, influencing young musicians with a traditional Creole music he learned decades ago.
At the Forefront of Nouveau Zydeco Jeffery Broussard and Robbie Robinson founded Zydeco Force in the late 1980s, a band that became an icon on the zydeco scene at the forefront of the nouveau zydeco movement. The bamd provided a template for a new generation of artists. But Broussard has come full circle in his career. He grew up in the traditional zydeco, brought in a new sound in the 1980s and has now returned to his roots.
Jeffery Broussard & The Creole Cowboys deliver great, pack the floor renditions of Creole Classics. The Creole Cowboys create incredible music and outstanding performances, cultivating and inspiring new generations of Creole Zydeco fans.
Columnist for the Lafayette Advertiser and weekly host for KRVS radio program "Zydeco Stomp" Herman Fuselier has reviewed Cajun and Zydeco music for years. In 2008, Herman wrote, "If the crown (for King of Zydeco) was resurrected, my top candidate would be Jeffery Broussard. My idea of king is not the guy with the hottest band, most popular song or most women around the bandstand. I think of a musician who can command the accordion like no other. That's easily Jeffery Broussard, who is Pound for Pound the best zydeco accordion player around. If you don't believe me, believe Boozoo, who most young players imitate today. Years ago, I asked Chavis (Boozoo), who he thought was the best player. His first answer was Jeffery Broussard. Many of the band leaders today has taken lessons from Broussard"
Over the years Jeffery has mastered the accordion as well as the fiddle and many other instruments.
He has achieved many awards which include:
Accordionist of the year
Centurion Award
Canray Fontenot Fiddle Award
The TrailBlazer Award
Inducted into the Louisiana Folk Life Center Hall of Fame
and many more.
Reviews
"Granted Broussard operates within a traditional framework, but he does so with uncanny ingenuity." --
Dan Willging,"Offbeat"
"Jeffery Broussard certainly, at this point in time---the dean of zydeco accordion. I don't think there's anyone out there who can touch him on the accordion. Jeffery Broussard is the king."
---Peter Rost, Host of "Pine Grove Blues"
"Mr. Broussard and his cowboys are fabulous: You start moving in your seat as soon as their rhythmic, rich melodies, both joyous and mournful, flood the theater."
--- "New York Times"
