Mike Broussard & Nu’ Edition Zydeko

Homebase:Louisiana

Genre:Zydeco
I am Mike Broussard with Mike Broussard & Nu Edition Zydeko from Lawtell, La. I have been playing zydeco music since the age of 8 years old. The great Roy Carrier & the Zydeco Night Rockers was the first band that I had the pleasure of playing the wash board with. From there, I played the guitar with Wayne Singleton & the Same Ol Two Step which opened the doors for many opportunities. I have played with several great zydeco bands such as: Keith Frank & the Soileau Zydeco Band, Lil Nate & the Zydeco Bigtimers, Chris Ardoin and Nu Step Zydeko and others.
Zydeco music has been passed down from generation to generation. I learned so much from watching my uncle Herbert Broussard, who was the singer/song writer from Zydeco Force and my cousin Jeffery Broussard with Jeffrey Broussard & the Creole Cowboys. In the attempt to keep zydeco music alive, I decided to start my own band in 2017. My band and I play a mix of traditional zydeco music from artists such as: Buck Wheat Zydeco, Clifton Chenier and Rockin Dopsie and new age zydeco. I strive to keep the old school zydeco feel along with the new age zydeco sound each time I step on stage. The band and I recently won the “New Artist on the Rise” award from ZBT Awards hosted in Houston, TX.
