A native of Lafayette, (Ossun) Louisiana, Horace Trahan began playing the accordion at the tender age of fifteen. Under the accordion artisanship of his mentor and cousin, Mr. Felix Richard, Horace learned early on, ‘if you can’t get into what you’re doing, then don’t expect other people to get into what you’re doing!’ For the band, the proof of feeling what they’re doing is depicted on the happy faces of every dancing person wherever they perform!
