From Jeannette Wilson:

Zydeco Rex is a great new Zydeco band from Seattle.

They formed the group in early 2013 and are one of the region's newest Zydeco bands.

Jack & I were blown away at the Louisianathon with Zydeco Rex!

They created a sound that rocked the dance floor and you couldn't resist getting up and dancing!

They've been performing and/or dancing to zydeco music for 20+ years.

Band members are:

Mark Myking - accordion for cajun & zydeco for 2 decades

Danny Salonen - drummer & vocalist - hailing from Vashon Island's Lang family & playing music since an early age.

Tina Tanaka - rubboard & vocals - a zydeco enthusiast for 2 decades - previously with Captain Leroy & the Zydeco Locals

Will Tanaka - electric bass & vocals -rounds out the band's great sound

Kevin Kilmartin - rhythmic electric guitar - previously with Captain Leroy & the Zydeco Locals

Lesson at 7:00 followed by live music and dancing until 10:30.

$12 cover.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Jeannette
