Hands down Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble is Rochester’s favorite Louisiana Zydeco Band. In 2013 Curley blew the rook off the tent at the Rochester Jazz Fest’s Abilene Roots Americana Stage.  For 5 years in a row, by popular demand, Curley has played the Rochester Cajun Zydeco Network’s Mardi Gras Party.  Nobody does it like Curley Taylor ... Soulful Sensuous and Sweaty … Delivering Zydeco with a rich Soul Gospel Hip Hop-tinged sound.
