Creole Stomp

Some have called Creole Stomp a "blues infused creole-zydeco dance machine" and others have called the band "the Grateful Dead of creole music."  Creole Stomp is simply a powerhouse Louisiana style band that keep listeners enthralled and dancers in motion with a rollicking mix of contemporary blues, swamp pop, and traditional Cajun and zydeco music.  Creole Stomp shows have become legendary for the heart and passion conveyed from the stage, music with emotion and energy that literally jumps from the band.  Having performed across the United States from Providence to Las Vegas, Creole Stomp makes it's home in southern Illinois...but most fans still believe it's from Louisiana!!

Dennis Stroughmatt

Dennis lives out wisdom given by Wade Ray, his Western Swing Fiddle mentor ...

“Son, when you’re on that stage, give them your whole heart, only then can you give all of your passion to the audience.  Show the world you love what you do.”

Dennis’ deep knowledge of the music comes from mentors that include Morris Ardoin and Canray Fontenot, Faren Serrette and the late Hadley Castille.  Amazing multi-instrumentalist, kick-ass accordion player, searing fiddler, and gripping vocalist who has evolved into a one-of-a-kind ethnomusicologist scouring the full range of the Louisiana Purchase to find the last vestiges of French Creole ~ Cajun ~ Zydeco music and transforming the aging artifacts into power packed musical gems that intrigue and inspire.
