On August 9, the Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego present Dwight 'Black Cat' Carrier and the Zydeco Ro Doggs from Opelousas, Louisiana.

Dwight Carrier comes from a long line of distinguished musicians. He is nephew of Roy Carrier, and cousin to Dikki Du and Chubby Carrier. Moreover, the very first zydeco festival, Southwestern Louisiana Zydeco Music Festival, took place in his hometown of Opelousas in 1982.

Dwight's music career began in 1988 at the age of 14 when he and his brother Joseph formed the band Dwight Carrier and the Zydeco Rockers and recorded an album, My Baby Left Me. At age 17 Dwight joined the Creole and blues musician Warren Ceasar's Creole Zydeco Snap Band as accordion player. The band traveled the world for several years, and made multiple appearances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

In 2008 he formed his current band, Dwight 'Black Cat’ Carrier and the Zydeco Ro Doggs. This band embodies zydeco traditions, but with a unique style infused with blues and R&B.

 

Dwight Carrier & The Ro Doggs have played for the Bon Temps dancers in 2009 and in 2012. The energy was awesome!  Don't miss the August dance at War Memorial Hall in Balboa Park featuring Dwight Carrier and The Ro Doggs, Saturday, August 9th.
