Louisiana Crossroads - Zigaboo Modeliste, King of the Funky Drum
AcA's James D. Moncus Theater, 101 W. Vermilion St., Lafayette.
If you haven't heard Zigaboo's incredibly tight and genre-defining drumming on the original recordings of The Meters, or the pivotal Wild Tchoupitoulas recordings of the 1970s, you've undoubtedly heard one of the countless times he's been sampled during the last several decades. A first generation creator of Louisiana funk, Zigaboo has worked with The Rolling Stones and countless others. This show, featuring his hard-grooving seven-piece band, will be the perfect high-energy closer to the season.
