ABOUT THE ARTIST
Geno Delafose & French Rockin' Boogie
Geno Delafose and French Rockin’ Boogie are a zydeco band from southwest Louisiana, deep in Louisiana’s bayou country. Geno relies on his traditional Creole sensibility for guidance in his music. He divides his time between touring with his band and operating his Double D Ranch, outside of Eunice, where he breeds cattle and raises American Quarter Horses. Geno’s CD Le Creole Cowboy was nominated for a Grammy Award. French Rockin’ Boogie includes Popp Esprite (bass), Germaine Jack (guitar), Dale Stelley (drums), and Demetric Thomas (rubboard).
