Bayou X

Bayou XNew Orleans native Pete Simoneaux, and his spouse/partner Linda Simoneaux have been performing Louisiana Cajun & Creole music since the late 1980s, first in Philadelphia, as Schuylkill Bayou Ramblers, and since 1997 in New England, as Lil Orphans. In 2011, they released their debut CD, Big Powerful Woman, under the name Lil' Orphans Cajun Express. They rechristened the Cajun Express band under the name Bayou X in 2013, to better reflect the band's continued stylistic expansion. They work with many excellent musicians, and constantly evolve their lineup to take full advantage of all the wonderful musical flavors in their musical garden! And what a harvest they offer; not only Louisiana Cajun music, but also Creole Zydeco, Swamp Pop, New Orleans Funk, Rhythm & Blues, and musical styles from the global Creole diaspora - Dominica, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Martinique, St Lucia, Trinidad.... Bayou X is a high energy dance band, with a diverse lineup of top area musicians, performing an increasingly original musical repertoire, guaranteed to delight and entertain. Core membership of the group includes, but is not limited to the following:
