J Paul Jr & the Zydeco Nubreeds have taken the French Creole music of rural Southwest Louisiana and blended it with sounds of blues, R & B, Hip Hop, and Gospel. All the way from Houston, TX with this style and sound, they have "CHANGED THE GAME" and taken Zydeco to next level nationally.
With the release of 11 cd's, 1 live in concert DVD, and a new CD just released in March of 2009 titled "STRONGER", this band is well on there way to major success! There is a high demand for the band to perform at major festivals, clubs, church events, fundraisers, political rallies, etc. This band has been on stage with Zydeco Legends Beau Jocque.
