What They Say..........

What they're saying to and about Rockin' Dopsie, Jr.

He's boogied with James Brown, packed the House of Blues, played at the White House, and traveled to more cities than a Greyhound. Critics hail him as one of zydeco's most cherished symbols and a party seems to break out whenever and wherever he and his band show up.

No matter how many performances were witnessed at last year's Jazz Fest, the explosive set turned in by Rockin' Dopsie, Jr. would be hard to top. From the outset, it was bedlam all the way.

Rockin' Dopsie, Jr. is the Mick Jagger of the marsh.

- The Travel Channel

You're everything Vanna said and then some.

- Pat Sajack, Wheel of Fortune

The only way you could be more funky is if you'd been born a skunk.

- Cyril Neville, The Neville Brothers

Son of late musician taking zydeco places it's never been.

- The Advocate, Baton Rouge

It was a pleasure to welcome you to the White House. I really enjoyed your performance and am so glad to have your CD.

- Bill Clinton

"When Rockin' Dopsie, Sr. unexpectedly passed away in 1993, the Dopsie family vowed to keep his memory alive, mainly in the incarnation of this band, Rockin' Dopsie, Jr. & The Zydeco Twisters. In doing so, it's become its own phenomenon. No other zydeco band has ever been fronted by a washboard player. It's usually the accordionist, and it's also a safe bet that there's never been such a flamboyant personality as Rockin' Dopsie, Jr., who can turn a house upside down on a moment's notice."
