Louisiana Blues & Zydeco

Mark St. Mary’s Louisiana Blues & Zydeco Band is a 5 member band that plays traditional Louisiana blues and zydeco music.

Dubbed the “Delta King” and awarded the “Best Zydeco Band” in 2007 by Bay Area Blues Society, Mark’s been playing his traditional style of zydeco music since the age of 13. His music is best described as infectious – once the band starts playing, the crowd doesn’t want him to stop, yelling “Play One More” over and over!

Mark sings in both English & Creole French. We pride ourselves in being able to give the crowd a variety, zydeco, blues, R&B, and even a lil’ country. 
Followers of this music love the excitement it brings and the joy they get from dancing to it, be it a waltz, two-step, line dance or down-home flat-foot zydeco!

We play festivals, Mardi Gras, weddings, anniversaries, private parties, corporate events, New Years and/or whatever you like. We will perform to whatever the theme is. 
With Mark’s gift of gab, he comes prepared to really put on a show, making you not wanna sit down.

We guarantee to keep you entertained, keeping the skirt-tails floppin’ and the cowboy boots stompin’.
