ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This band is a perfect example of what can happen when one of the most tenacious supporters of Louisiana music pairs up with like-minds on the cemented plains of North Central Texas. To many DFW live music addicts, T-Richard & the Zydeco Stingrays represent the Pelican State of mind with a cosmopolitan sophistication mixed with the social camaraderie of a backyard barbeque. Their musical independence may shake the roots of traditional zydeco, but what would anyone expect from a band forced to traverse Big D on Central Expressway? Luckily, there\'s an exit ahead — a welcome departure from the well-worn Texas music directions. For this band, zydeco music infused with some big city style is all that is necessary to create a scene — and a new outlet for those lookin\' for a helluva good time!

Just Buy the Damn Thing!
You won't regret it - lotsa fun to be had on this one! Not over-produced like so many first records you hear from bands today. The songwriting is solid, the drumming is awesome, vocals from the heart. Hiphopopotumus is whackadoo baby! That song alone is worth $14.99...

Zydeco Gumbo
Like a tasty gumbo, this album is a combination of many different ingredients. Starting with a Zydeco base, they've added a pinch of rock, a dash of Reggae & Ska, and a dollop of Hip Hop. I even sensed a hint of Hawaiian Steel Guitar. Topped with some Spicy humor, the result makes a very flavorful dish, with taste enough to please everyone.

Dallas' premier Zydeco band ROCKS!
This much awaited debut CD finally arrives!! After watching these guys perform live for two years in the DFW area, you can now fire up their own brand of zydeco anytime you want, and take that trip down to Louisiana. From an "almost traditional" cajun waltz, to accordion infused rock, these guys can do it all, and do it well. I wish i could pick out a favorite, or possibly "best" track......but that would be impossible. Try "I don't lie" or "190 Fever" for some really good driving music, "Requisition", for a glimpse into all of the talent this band posesses, or"Hiphopopotums" for smoething truly unique....and fun Pick a track, any track, and see if your feet don't get movin'. One note of caution, listnening to this cd will cause furniture to be moved, rugs to be rolled back, and a serious good time to be had by all.

Allons Zydeco!!

This Ain't Your Grampa's Zydeco
T-Richard’s heart and soul are firmly in the bayou but he has been influenced by many other styles of music along the way and that comes across clearly on this great new CD. Fourteen tracks of original Zydeco with a sense of humor and stylistic twists and turns. The old school opening track Z’Echo establishes the band’s South Louisiana bone fides. These cats are no Pauvre ‘Tit Johnny come lately’s! Back It Up and Moss Bluff Waltz continue in the traditional style before Spank My Monkey (a crowd favorite at their live shows) adds a more contemporary rock influence. Mo’ Fiyah sprinkles a Caribbean jerk spice into the gumbo. Back To Louisiana has a down home Cajun vibe that will have your feet moving right into the more contemporary feel of Hiphopopotumus. There is not a bad cut! If you are fan of authentic Louisiana music but aren’t into tired repetition of tradition you will love this CD.

Best New Zydeco Record
T-Rick and the gang made my favorite zydeco record this year. And the best song on the record (with all due respect to Swangin' Dick) isn't even zydeco: check Mo' Fiyah and light it up!
