Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraiser's
“America’s Hottest Accordion” winner, Dwayne (Dopsie) Rubin, plays a unique, high energy style of zydeco. Dwayne hails from one of the most influential Zydeco families in the world. Although inspired by tradition, he has developed his own high energy style that defies existing stereotypes and blazes a refreshingly distinct path for 21st century Zydeco music. This singer/songwriter and accordionist has performed all over the world since debuting his band, Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers, at age 19.

Growing up in Lafayette, LA, Dwayne, now 32, was the last of eight children. His musical ablilities were influenced by his father, Rockin' Dopise, Sr., who was a pioneer of Zydeco Music. This year, as a tribute, Dwayne plans to record an album of his Dad's greatest Zydeco hits.

Dwayne Dopsie and The Zydeco Hellraisers not only pump out incredible Zydeco music, they also add a bit of rhythm and blues, funk, rock and roll, reggae and pop to their performances. His performances have been described as, "Muscular, rhythm and blues-styled lyrics balanced with expert musicians swinging hard—this is Saturday night zydeco at its best." - Brian Boyles, Offbeat Magazine

The band is currently in the studios recording their 5th album. Visit www.DwayneDopsie.com for more information
