“Dr. Zog, Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Your band made our party a huge success. Our employees are still buzzing about the great band we hired. The music was high energy from the moment you hit the stage. It was the perfect vibe for this themed party. The highlight of the evening had to be the Mardi Gras parade. Dr. Zog leading 140 people through the streets of San Antonio is classic. It is a memory we will keep forever. I can’t say enough how pleased we were to have you at our event. You are definitely on the top of our list for future company functions. Thanks again and let’s go zydeco.” — Robin

Texas Zydeco Train – Dr. Zog – review by Jim Hance
If you like your Louisiana gumbo with a dash of Texas BBQ sauce and a side of slaw, you have to check out Texas Zydeco Train by the Dr. Zog Band. Dr. Zog has been doing zydeco music for about 20 years, and has eight albums – mostly zydeco – to show for it. But that doesn’t mean he gives up on his local color. His songs are steadfastly, unapologetically Texan, colorfully flavored with lots of Texas context and amusing self parody – the way Jimmy Buffet would do zydeco if he was from Texas. Add to it the ZZ Top riffs, sudden and unexpected country steel guitar flourishes, Cindy Cashdollar’s sweet Southern country steel guitar, references to Texas roads and South Austin, some blues harmonica work which reminds me a lot of Rod Piazza, all put together with sly and witty lyrics. This is an improbable gumbo that can have you questioning whether Texas and Louisiana can actually share a border, while at the same time get you moving on the dance floor and smiling all over! There is a bit more lyrically here than you might imagine from a zydeco compilation. And that’s a good thing! Check out Dr. Zog’s latest effort, Texas Zydeco Train, at iTunes. Dr. Zog has been busy. They also put out an album of funky Latin-hustle- jazz stuff last year as well entitled She’s Got The Glow, also available on iTunes.
Dr. Zog says, a big “Thank you” to Mr. James Hance for his insightful review of Texas Zydeco Train. James is keeping the zydeco dancers of St. Petersburg, Florida shuffling their feet to the zydeco beat. Check out his zydeco website http://www.floridacajunzydeco.com/
