Geno Delafose

The son of late influential zydeco accordionist John Delafose, Geno Delafose has continued to expand on his father's musical legacy. Together with his band, French Rockin' Boogie, Delafose has blended the traditional sounds of zydeco with the excitement of modern dance music. "We have that old country feel," Delafose said during a late-'90s interview, "that soft swing and then we have that loud, bluesy, get-down thing going on, too. We try to mix it up, give everybody something they can dance to."
