The 2017 Summer Arts Festival closes their 2017 Friday Night Out Concert Series with their finale featuring Zydeco-a-Go-Go on Friday, July 28, 2017 on the Henderson Lawn.

Zydeco-a-Go-Go, the Mid-Atlantic’s premier practitioners of Louisiana dance music, are bringing the zydeco party to the people. Their motto is: “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!” or “Let The Good Times Roll!” At the heart of any Zydeco-A-Go-Go song is the classic zydeco sound of accordion and frattoir (rubboard) augmented by saxophone, electric guitar, electric bass and drums.

Although based in Philadelphia, the group has garnered praise for its authentic Louisiana sound. When playing a gig at the legendary Rock & Bowl in New Orleans, they kept the crowded dance-floor busy, with lots of smiling faces everywhere.

And whether they're playing a large festival or a smalltown fair, a performing arts center or a block party: you know it's gonna be a wild and swingin' bayou boogaloo pitch-a-wang-dang-doodle-all-night-long zydeco dance party... with everybody singing "Let The Good Times Roll!"
