Dikki Du & The Zydeco Krewe
Dikki Du (Troy Carrier) was born in 1969 in Church Point, Louisiana and discovered his love for zydeco music at the tender age of nine. After school, he
would get together with his brother (Chubby), sister (Elaine) and father (Roy) to play Zydeco music. At the age of twelve, Troy moved to a little town
called "Lawtell", where his father owned the Offshore Lounge for over fifteen years. Troy played the washboard for his father on
local gigs until he joined forces with the great C.J. Chenier for two years.
Later, Troy's brother (Chubby Carrier) started a family band and offered Troy a job playing the drums. Troy toured with his brother from the late 80's until the 90's, when he returned home to pick up the accordion. It's been twelve years that Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe have been on the scene. Dikki Du has incorporated his musical heritage with unique experiences to create one of the most innovative zydeco groups in the area.
The Zydeco Krewe captures an audience with one of the best sets in town. His original, funky and hypnotic zydeco style announces that he has arrived, occupying a spot on par with the best. "Personally, the triple row is the sound that I like the best," says Dikki Du. He takes songs from classic zydeco and turns them inside out with fresh and funky renditions driving it to the next level. The Krewe’s innovations have revitalized zydeco for years to come.
What a sound!!!
Dikki and the Krewe stretch out songs making them ideal for dancing or simply listening. Hard driving and relentless is the theme all night. It's just funky as can be. Nice polyrhythmic grooves going around the stage and on the dance floor. Dikki Du and his Krewe comes out "smokin" harder and faster in the second set.
The band is one of the best; they are all stars in their own right.
