Mason Trail & Zydeco Rhythm
Mason Trail was born on December 29, 1987, in Lake Charles Louisiana.
He is a zydeco accordionist and singer. He is the grandson of Boozoo Chavis, who is a major influence in his music with other influences such as traditional zydeco and country music. He got his start in zydeco at a very young age learning to play the accordion at age 10.
Then, he developed a passion to learn how to play the bass guitar. He finally purchased one in 2005 soon after hurricane Rita and sat in the lobby of the hotel - he and his family evacuated to - and began to teach himself. He became familiar with the bass, then he and his cousins formed The Dog Hill Stompers Zydeco Band. They traveled to places across the country spreading and sharing their talents with friends and fans.
In May 2016, Mason lost his older brother Quincy in a single vehicle accident (he was also a member of the Dog Hill Stompers Band). Mason chose to keep his brother's passion for the music alive, which sparked him to create the band Mason Trail and Zydeco Rhythm.
Zydeco Rhythm has a repertoire of modern zydeco along with traditional authentic zydeco. Mason plans to travel the world to spread his good music just as his grandfather did.
