Pssst, say buddy, wanna buy a tank, a fighter plane, some rocket launchers, a bit of nerve gas, or maybe a zydeco band? Your tax dollars at work? How about your tax dollars at a dance? Maybe Ventura County is really a colony of Louisiana much as Bakersfield is actually the westernmost city in Oklahoma. Now with C. Chenier , Terrance Simien and Buckwheat Zydeco , people are getting into zydeco more.

Dance All Night
Imagine a bike ride where speed doesn't matter and every pedal stroke carries you closer to another helping of Louisiana music, food or drink. I lived that dream at Cycle Zydeco, a mile rolling Cajun culture festival. This was no endurance event to be feared. Mileage hovered between 40 and 65 absolutely flat miles per day, and no one hurried as we spun past crawfish ponds and cow pastures in the heart of Cajun Country. This year's ride drew party-loving cyclists, mostly in their 50s and 60s, many from the Midwest; organizers hope to grow it to 1,
Though Cajun and zydeco music are not native to New Orleans they're rooted in Acadiana, the area around Lafayette , they've made a solid and lasting impression on the Big Easy's musical scene. There are also plenty of good Cajun and zydeco bands playing throughout the city on any given week, so no matter when you visit, you should be able to find an excellent band that'll have you waltzing and two-stepping around the floor for hours. It's okay to just sit in the back and watch, too. Just don't be too surprised if a friendly local drags you to the floor at some point.
