Buckwheat Zydeco Performs at Infinity Hall in Norfolk on Sunday
Buckwheat Zydeco — vocalist/accordian master Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural Jr. (pictured) and his band — have been plugging along for more than three decades, bringing Louisiana zydeco to audiences all over the country. But they're neither a nostalgia act (their 2010 Alligator Records debut Lay Your Burden Down won a Grammy) nor a purveyor of down-south exotica: this is a band that rocks, one that won't let you catch your breath (until they say so). They also do a stomping version of Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks," so listen for that.
