Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band at the Camden Opera House on February 9 at 7:00 pm. C.J., the son of Zydeco King Clifton Chenier, is a Grammy nominated, world renowned musician and recording artist who has shared stages with Paul Simon, John Mayall, Joe Sample and the Gin Blossoms to name a few. He was a close friend and jam partner to legendary Buckwheat Zydeco and since Buckwheat’s passing last September, C.J. has been in ever more demand as one of the last of the greats. Last year C.J. and his band rocked the house, with virtually everyone on their feet enjoying one of the finest living Zydeco musicians today. His unique brand of Zydeco, blues and R & B will surely have people moving all night long this year too.
