Kevin Naquin and the Ossun Playboys

Day 2+3

Front Porch Stage

9:30 PM + 5:50 PM

Presented by Cascade Zydeco Association

Known as one of “hottest Cajun bands to ever come out of the swamps” (Juke Blues Magazine), Kevin Naquin and the Ossun Playboys, of Ossun, Louisiana, have released multiple award winning albums and their live shows have also earned them numerous prestigious awards. Among their many, many awards from the Cajun French Music Association are Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Accordion of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Band of the Year.

True to their Cajun background, the Ossun Playboys perform traditional tunes, but they also like to experiment a little with pushing the limits of Cajun music. Says Blues Reviews, when seeing their show you should “stock up on oxygen beforehand, because chances to catch a breath evaporate once these guys command the room. Confident, energetic and ambitious, accordion-crushing Kevin Naquin is the go-to man when it comes to making Cajun dancehalls kick nowadays.”

Kevin Naquin and the Ossun Playboys and their pulsing two-steps and historical waltz are bound to keep your dancing shoes working and put sweat on your brow!
