Chubby Carrier

The traditional 2-steps and blues-inspired rhythms of zydeco are transformed into the modern dance-inspiring music of Roy "Chubby" Carrier and his group, the Bayou Swamp Band. While The Chicago Tribune referred to Carrier as "one of the finer standard bearers of the classic zydeco sound among the new generation of Louisiana bands," The Worcester Telegram and Gazette praised Carrier for his "unbridled enthusiasm and the ability to make a party happen whether he's playing for five people or five hundred," and The Atlanta Daily News wrote that Carrier "knows how to let the good times roll with the power and precision of a seasoned musician."
