Li'l Anne & Hot Cayenne

Take half a dozen groovemasters, add a spicy blend of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, and funk to the up-tempo Zydeco beat, and presto, you’ve got a dance groove that just won’t quit! Taking the Northeast Zydeco scene by storm, Li’l Anne & Hot Cayenne have been invited to play a variety of prestigious venues including the Rhythm and Roots Festival in Charlestown, RI, The Great Connecticut Cajun/Zydeco Music & Arts Festival, and the renowned Saratoga Springs Dance Flurry. In addition, the band has been invited to play venues typically reserved for Louisiana Zydeco bands such as Johnny D’s in Sommerville, MA, La Belle Époque, NYC; the TK Club in Philly, and the Somebody Scream Dance Series, Baltimore, MD.  Li’l Anne & Hot Cayenne has also appeared with and provided back-up to Willis Prudhomme and has been invited on stage with Zydeco Force, Sean Ardoin and Zydekool, Leroy Thomas and Roy Carrier.
