Zydecobrad’s SoCal Cajun & Zydeco Website for Cajun / Zydeco Entertainment * Don’t Miss Dexter Ardoin This Sunday Aug 12th at The French Quarter Creole Bar and Grill

 

Sunday, August 12 ... from 4:30 to 7:30 pm
(Note corrected time.)
 Golden Sails Zydeco is moving to the French Quarter!

... The French Quarter Creole Bar & Grill, that is

address: 16728 Bellflower Blvd. - Bellflower, CA 90706


Admission:  $15 at the Door

 

 

 

 

Presenting, from Louisiana  ...  Dexter Ardoin

 

 

 

Dexter performs the joyous, heartfelt Creole music that's been part of the Ardoin family for generations.

Listen to Dexter Ardoin live in Opalousas
 

 

 

 

Let's make this event at "The French Quarter" a success. 
We hope this is the first of many dances to come at this new location.

I will always love the culture, music, and dance.  See you on the dance floor!
