FREE CONCERT in Hyattsville, MD
Here is the press release announcing a gig in Maryland:
ZYDECO MUSIC LEGEND GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTON
Free Performance to pay tribute to the late Roy Carrier by Grammy Award Winning Artist Chubby Carrier
Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band are bringing their Grammy-award winning brand of swamp-funky zydeco music to the East Coast. During this rare East Coast appearance, Carrier will take a night to pay a special tribute to his Dad, pioneering zydeco legend Roy Carrier, with a fan appreciation party at the Surf Club, in Hyattsville, Maryland.
During his lengthy career, the elder Roy developed a large and devoted fan base on the East Coast, and the Surf Club was a regular gig. Since his death in 2010, his fans have expressed tremendous love and support to the Carrier family. To show his gratitude, Chubby will pay tribute to his Dad by giving a free show. "I want to show the fans how much I appreciate them supporting my dad." Carrier says.
When Roy played the Surf Club, the place just pulsated with the energy of his music. The Washington Post described Roy's signature style as a "raucus and relentless invitation to dance. " "That's what Chubby promises this night will be," added Wayne Kahn, Roy's long-time friend and producer. If you are a fan or even if you have never heard zydeco before, this is a night not to be missed.
