Terry & the Zydeco Bad Boys
TERRY & THE ZYDECO BAD BOYS
Terry Domingue (Accordion and Vocals)
Since the age of four, Terry would stand at the foot of any stage mesmerized by countless bands performing at trail rides. At age eight, this self-taught accordion player received his first accordion and has been playing ever since. Growing up around his grandparents, Terry had no choice but to learn Creole French. In an effort to keep this tradition alive, he continues to sing many traditional zydeco songs - in French - as well as writing new ballads.
Chris P. Ardoin (Bass and Background Vocals)
Born into a family of zydeco legends such as Amedee and Bois-Sec Ardoin, this gifted musician has never picked up an instrument that he can't play. If you're brave enough to challenge him to 'Name that Tune', you will quickly learn that he is a walking encyclopedia of Zydeco musical knowledge. When he is not entertaining, he's sure to have everyone around him laughing at his impersonations of Zydeco legends.
Chuck Bush (Bass, Guitar & Background Vocals)
Chuck has been playing bass and guitar for quite some time. He's better known for playing his unique style with the 'Cornbread' man, himself, the late great Beau Jocque. He's also played bass with traditional playing accordionist Andre' Thierry. With his funky bass lines and singing during Terry's short intermissions, you're sure to find yourself having a great time.
Kendrick Domingue Scrubboard (Background Vocals)
Don't let one of the newest bad boys fool you. While he may be new to the band, he is a true cowboy with strong, Zydeco roots. After riding and roping all day, it is not unusual to find his horse and best friend, Cotton-Tail, in her trailer outside wherever the Bad Boys are performing. Whether he is in cowboy boots or his Sunday best, his quick arms that provide the choppy, old Zydeco rhythm & his big smile are sure to charm you.
Lil Terry Arceneaux (Drummer)
As the newest member of the band, he has brought energy and rhythm of an experienced drummer and true entertainer. Never at a loss for rhythms or words, he will have you stomping your feet and begging for more.
