Alley Kats Presents Bayou Diesel Live--

Cajun/Zydeco/Honky-Tonk Swing!!  Get your dancing

shoes ready!



Bayou Diesel is one of Western North Carolina’s premier dance bands. Focusing

on the famous Cajun/zydeco and New Orleans Mardi-gras dance music the band is

a delightful party outfit suitable to most occasions. The group was formed to

provide the high energy dance music that has so long personified the base of

Louisiana culture and their “joi d’ vivre”. Featuring several squeezebox

accordions, a rubboard and a solid rhythm section with French and English vocals,

the group brings the audience quickly back to mardi gras and the celebration of

traditions that go back centuries. The mantra has always been “ Laissez les bon

temps roulers” or as everybody knows “Let the Good Times Roll!

Formed in 2005 the name is a double entendre for the emerging alternative fuels

industry. To date, the group has recorded two CD’s: “The Bayou Diesel Band”

and “Sold Here” and plays often at festivals and clubs in the Asheville region. In

2013 Bayou Diesel performed at the world famous Merlefest in Wilkesboro, NC.

There are often a crowd of dancers at their shows enjoying the fun. In fact, with

Bayou Diesel, the good times are found throughout Western North Carolina

wherever these boys play! Et Toi!
