"Great Dance Grooves"
and "A Joie de Vivre Attitude"
Johnny Ace & Sidewalk Zydeco have been playing together since September 2006. The band has repeatedly received "Highly recommended" ratings from Time Out NY magazine for it's NYC Let's Zydeco shows, and has also been highlighted in The New Yorker.
A quote from Steve Riley: "Johnny Ace and Sidewalk Zydeco are one of the hottest up and coming groups in Zydeco music outside of south LA! These guys have been listening to and studying Cajun and Zydeco music for years and truly capture the essence of what Zydeco music is about. Great energy, very danceable, solid rhythm, and the laissez les bon temps roulez attitude that makes audiences feel good... These guys love Zydeco music and that comes across in their live performances and "joie de vivre" attitude! NE Zydeco at its finest!"
