bayouboogie BUCKWHEAT ZYDECO’S BAYOU BOOGIE Buck’s back with his first new kids’ album in 15 years! Order now from Amazon.com Buckwheat Zydeco’s Bayou Boogie is out now on the Music For Little People label. This family dance party collection from the bayous of Southwest Louisiana also features children’s music superstars Laurie Berkner and Dan Zanes. Buckwheat Zydeco’s Bayou Boogie is the long-awaited follow up to Buck’s 1994 beloved children’s album, Choo Choo Boogaloo. That recording won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award and received a Parents’ Choice “Approval” rating as well as 5 Stars (Top rating) on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, and Epinions.com. Offbeat says: “Like it’s predecessor, Bayou Boogie is a joyous blast of zydeco, funk and R&B that teaches kids about the heritage and instruments of zydeco while inspiring the whole family to get up and dance.” Just as Buck is so well known for in his legendary live shows: smoking accordion, rocking Hammond B3 organ, rollicking rub board and sizzling guitar licks join together on this recording to create a musical gumbo of Creole culture that can almost be smelled and tasted. Buck guides children and parents through a rollicking mix of some of the most family-friendly classic rock ‘n’ roll tunes and great original songs performed in a Zydeco style as only Buckwheat Zydeco can. The result is a rich tribute to this unique melting pot of American culture. Buckwheat Zydeco’s Bayou Boogie is designed to introduce children to a fun time at Buck’s place on the bayou, and it kicks into high gear with the joyous “We’re Having a Party.” Buck and friends get kids into a festive mood with good-time boogie classics like “Barefootin’” and “Walking the Dog,” and Buck and guests all put their right feet in on “Hokey Pokey.” Buck’s own “The Mice Ate My Rice” and “Ripsy Dipsy” prove that nothing stops him from having a good time, even when “Everything Hurts.” The celebration ends as happily as it started with “The Party’s Over.” “Children are our future and our treasure,” says Buck. “Nothing makes me happier than seeing kids have a good time, and I’m so proud to be able to introduce them to my musical roots and get them boogying to the sounds of Zydeco music.”
