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 the band playing at the local trail rides he would attend with his father. At age eight, this self-taught accordion player got his first accordion and has been playing since. Growing up around his grandparents Terry had no choice but to learn Creole French. To keep tradition alive he continues to sing many traditional zydeco songs in French as well as writing many new ones of his own.
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 cannot 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 music and musicians. When he is not entertaining you on stage he is sure to have you in stitches laughing at his impersonations of zydeco legends.
Chuck Bush Bass/Guitar and Background vocals- Chuck has been playing bass and guitar for quite some time. He's better known as 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 are sure to find yourself having a great time.
Kendrick Domingue Scrubboard and background vocals- Dont let one of the newest bad boy 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 happen to be playing. Whether he is in cowboy boots or his Sunday best, his quick arms that provide that 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 and 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.
