The Offshore Lounge in Lawtell Was a Zydeco Breeding Ground — Zydeco Storytellers, Episode 2 [VIDEO]
Could you imagine just walking into a club and jamming with your Zydeco heroes? Well, for Grammy-winner Chubby Carrier, it was just another Thursday night. His father’s legendary club, the Offshore Lounge, was basically Ground Zero of today’s Zydeco explosion.
Chubby talks about his relationship with his father, the late Roy Carrier, and of the club where Zydeco greats like Geno Delofosse, Keith Frank, Beau Jacques and dozens of others got their start. Seems like it was inevitable that Chubby would take his own stab at a career in music after an experience like that.
Check out part two of Chubby Carrier’s “Zydeco Storytellers.”
This series is taken from a live concert at 107 JAMZ’s studios on Dec. 7, 2012. Joining Chubby are percussionist Earl Sally and guitarist Randy Ellis of the Bayou Swamp Band.
