Born in Lafayette, Louisiana, Jeffery Broussard started his music career at the age of eight when he played drums in his father‘s band, the renowned Delton Broussard & The Lawtell Playboys. By his teen years, Broussard had taught himself to play the accordion, and he began to develop the nouveau Zydeco sound in the band, Zydeco Force. Broussard and his current band, The Creole Cowboys, promise both their own brand of contemporary Zydeco and inspiring renditions of Creole classics.
"Broussard is the show…with virtuoso chops on the old-style button accordion, the newer piano-key accordion, and acoustic fiddle, with a voice that rivals Otis Redding's for grit and accessibility. A consummate showman…" - New Orleans Jazz Fest 2012 Review
