Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie
When it comes to getting people on the dance floor no one is better than Geno Delafose. Geno is the son of the legendary John Delafose and joined his father's band as a rubboard player at the tender age of 8. He went on to play drums in the band until his father’s passing in 1994 by which time he had switched to accordion and was well on his way to forming his own legacy in traditional Zydeco music. He has been nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Cajun/Zydeco Music Album" category for his 2007 recording "Le Cowboy Creole". He and his band are some of the hardest working musicians in the region sometime playing 3 to 4 times over the course of a weekend and packing the dance floor for each and every gig! He lives in Duralde near Eunice where he rides his tractor while raising cattle and horses!
