I went to visit a friend in New Orleans last year and we spent one very fun and very memorable night at a bar that had live Zydeco music all night long. I was familiar with Zydeco before I went to the bar but I had never seen it live before. It is a completely different experience to see it like that.
The music has so much energy and soul, it is infectious. I am not normally a dancer but I worked up a sweat because I was tearing it up so hard that night. And everyone in the bar loved it. I have never really been around a group of people that was so excited and enthusiastic about the music they loved.
