This band has been an idea of Kevin Dugas and Steve Riley for over ten years now. The idea was there, but nothing was ever put together until the middle of 2008. When Kevin put this group of guys together, they knew then there was something special. So they recorded a live gig which resulted in “Live from Breaux Bridge” parts 1 & 2.

The idea Kevin and Steve had was to take the twin fiddles and the powerful steel guitar sounds of Belton Richard and Aldus Roger, bring that sound back to life, and modernize that sound. Keeping the traditional sound of that era alive is the passion of this group. But with the modern technology of today, it’s like “1960’s dance hall music on steroids”. Everyone in the band has cut their teeth on this type of music. The songs they play were heard at the dance hall scene in the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Each member possesses musical talent passed down from generation to generation by close family. You can say that they are the second generation of musicians from an era of music they love and want to keep alive.

Zydeco Dots – 3pm-5pm

Saturday, October 13 – PCI Stage

The Zydeco Dots are a fun-loving, hard working, talented Houston-based group that plays a dancin’, rockin’, bluesiana blend of zydeco rhythm and blues. No event is too large or too small. Laissez les bon temps roulez!

The Zydeco Dots, more commonly referred to just as The Dots, originated in 1987. Back then Zydeco music itself was advancing in popularity and The Dots were about to do their part. Although Zydeco music was born in southern Louisiana the music had been played in the gulf coast region from the Florida panhandle to south Texas since the early 1900’s. Clifton Chenier (The King of Zydeco) gave the music its name and brought Zydeco to a new level. In Houston, Texas, during the mid 80’s, the music was still relatively obscure.

The Dots, based in Houston, brought Zydeco to venues where the music had never been heard before. Since then, The Zydeco Dots have won numerous awards and have been voted best Zydeco band by the Houston Press. The Dots have backed up many accordion players over the years including such notables as C J Chenier, Pierre Blanchard, Leon Sam, Pierre Stout, Wilfred Chavis, Lil Jabo, Ted Pacholik, Paul Richard, Lil Willie Davis, Lonnie Mitchell, Wilbert Thibideaux, and Promising new-comer Lil Pop’s.

Tom, Mike and Ted migrated to Houston and formed the band which is now known as The Zydeco Dots. The rest is Houston music history! What makes this band so successfully popular? Is it because they not only play Zydeco, but R&R, R&B, C&W, and other varieties of music? Is it because of their lively stage personalities? Is it because they plug the sponsors all the time? Is it because they like to shoot the bull with the audience so they can take extra long brakes? Or is it because Viagra was invented? You be the judge!

Heath Ledet – 5:30pm-7:30pm

Saturday, October 13 – PCI Stage

The Heath Ledet Band has a Cajun New Orleans style with a funky blues rhythm. Front-man Heath Ledet pushes with strong, true, down-on-the-bayou vocals.

A native of Bayou Lafourche, his love for music began at an early age. Inspired by his parents, he picked up a guitar at the age of 8 and began playing and writing music.

“When I was a young boy I would watch my father, Mel Ledet Jr., play guitar and sing with such true emotion. I always dreamt of being able to capture time as he did in his performances. Somehow he had and still has the ability to, as I like to call it, stop the clock. His emotions would take over and the last thing you were thinking about was time! As I began to get older, I started to experience shorter versions of these “stop the clock” moments while practicing. I soon figured out when I let my soul take over I could lose track of time and everything else besides playing guitar and singing. It was then when I realized exactly what I wanted; even though I couldn’t get it every time or more less in front of people.

I began playing with my brother, Mel Ledet III, and friend, Darrell Theriot, every chance I had. We spent many days and nights making a lot of noise but that was the extent of it. Hell, it made us feel good!! As time passed, I got stuck in a rut playing the same old songs over and over. I wanted more but didn’t know how to go get it! Some of my musician friends were in the same boat. I put aside my guitar for about 8 months and didn’t have any desire to play. At that time my brother, Mel, invited me to a festival called Voice of the Wet Lands (VOW) in Houma, Louisiana, where he was taking part in a cook-off team. He raved about the music and how much he loved the festival.

The following year, Mel planned for us to take our pig cooker out to the same festival and rotisserie a few, 300lbs pigs. Since I love to cook I jumped all over it!! I was blown away by the experience of the festival!! Watching Mike Zito rip it down with Jimmy Hall putting the harp in your face along with the killer vocals of both, brought out such beauty that it took my breath away! Tab getting up and jamming with Louisiana La Roux was out of this world! I kept thinking, ‘Man, it would be awesome to be good enough to get on that stage’.

I couldn’t wait to get home and pick up my guitar! Boy that sure did turn into a huge disappointment! I wanted to break it to pieces! I thought it was the guitar because I went to the guitar shop and bought a new guitar and amp. It sounded great while I was playing the same old things I had been playing for years but there was still something missing. I decided right then I was not going to play any more cover songs. I was going to search for the fresh start I needed.

Around that time, Darrell Theriot came to me with a book called THE MUSIC LESSON – A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music by Victor L. Wooten. All I can say is it was the best thing I have ever read. It changed my life!! It had all the answers I had been looking for right there! I took Mr. Victor’s advice and started to play along with some of my favorite musicians. I popped in some Jonny Lang and attempted to play.

For two years I didn’t play any cover songs for anyone. I just played the things I wrote and would practice alongside the musicians I truly respected. Hooked on the “VOW” Festival, we continued to cook every year and became friends with some great people! One night after planning another festival named the T-Bois Blues Festival in Larose, Louisiana, Ruben Williams popped in to say hello. Ruben manages the VOW entertainment along with many other festivals and great musicians. Not knowing I played music, he began to look around and take notice of all of my instruments lying around. When he realized they were mine he said, “I have known you now for a few years and didn’t know you were into music!”

Before I knew it I had a guitar in my hands. Mel was playing drums and Ruben was hopping around on different instruments! We were jamming out!! Soon after that, I got booked to play at T-Bois Blues Festival which was only a few months away at the time. After playing there I was given the opportunity to open Saturday’s music show at a very special festival. Yes, the one and only “VOW” Festival!! My dream!!! I got hooked up with Pershing Wells, the owner/producer of Digital Sac-a-Lait Productions in Houma, Louisiana and began working on my first album “Chasing My Dreams”. Working with Pershing was one of the best experiences of my life! I recommend Digital Sac-a-Lait Productions to anyone who is looking for nothing less than professional.”
