His past gigs include playing guitar with Rockin' Dopsie's band for 12 years and with Buckwheat Zydeco's original lineup for about a year. Over the years, he has held various jobs including acting as a deupty sheriff in the late 1970s, holding a regular gig in Canada that included doing a cooking show before his set and running his own auto business.
