Band World Zydeco





There is a festive New Orleans feel to this New Hampshire band’s new music. And their sound is a cross between what you would expect to hear on a countryside hayride and uptempo rural blues. Glen Robertson on accordion and vocals, Darrell Brown on rub board and percussion, Chris Noyes playing guitar and singing, Butch Black on bass and vocals, Mark Shemet behind the kit and on vocals with special guest Steve Roberge blowing sax. This is a very tight band and the accordion present front and center on all the cuts adds an almost sea shanty vibe to everything. Seven of the songs are credited to the band and they also cover “Tupelo Honey” by Van Morrison, “Shake Rattle And Roll” by Big Joe Turner, and zydeco king Chubby Carrier’s “Who Stole The Hot Sauce.” In all the covers, the band’s tightness playing together propels the songs to different territories with the last two becoming driving dance tunes with great horn arrangements. For rural blues check out the opener “My Baby Has Me,” “Kiss And Tell,” “So Am I,” and the instrumental closing cut “Waking Up On Bourbon Street.” “Cajun Girl” and “My MaryAnn”  are rocking songs you’d expect to hear on a hayride that could have been on the soundtrack of the 1965 Elvis Presley movie “Tickle Me” where he is a singing rodeo rider. Great voice. Great accordion. Great music.  (A.J. Wachtel) - The Noise Boston
