Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas

Blessed with a 2023 Grammy Awards nomination for their most recent recording Lucky Man, Nathan Williams and his top-shelf band the Zydeco Cha Chas have logged more than 35+ years on the zydeco road as Acadiana’s top R&B, blues, and zydeco pioneers. Whether performing at the likes of NYC’s Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall’s CityWide Concert Series, DC’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, Europe’s top blues festivals or down home at his brother’s famous El Sido’s Zydeco & Blues Club in Lafayette, Louisiana, Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas never fail to get the audience up and shakin’ a leg to their un-rivaled stomp-down zydeco party!

“If you don’t get up and shake a leg, you better call an undertaker - because you’re dead.” - Nathan Williams / Living Blues April 2019

“Every festival in the nation that cares about preserving and presenting American Heritage Music should book these guys tomorrow - they literally define American culture and they're a national treasure." - Syracuse Jazz Festival

“Nathan Williams never disappoints... the BEST zydeco in the business. " - No Depression Magazine
