Tri Tip Trio has all the ingredients to kick a dance off and sustain powerful grooves for the whole night. Their sound is based on Clifton and Cleveland Chenier’s early zydeco/blues dance hall sounds.
Lloyd Meadows’ mesmerizing washboard, hamonica, and soulful vocals with Bruce Gordon’s accordion and Tyler Eng’s drumming, is all Tri Tip needs to capture the raw, exciting sounds to satisfy both listeners and dancers. The repertoire covers zydeco, blues, New Orleans funk and originals.
Bruce and Lloyd are both longtime Bay Area Blues and Zydeco veterans.
They shared the stage for many years, performing with the Zydeco Flames, a band they founded in 1990. They are bringing their unique chemistry back to the stage with
Tri Tip Trio.
Tri Tip Trio is steeped in Louisiana and New Orleans zydeco and swamp blues.
Although little more than a year old, the band comes with a vision and well over a decade of its members playing together.
The groupís just-issued debut CD, 3 of a Kind, is a tribute to Clifton Chenier and includes original and traditional tunes and a cover of the Rolling Stones’ Miss You.
