Cantigny Summer Concert Series

Dwayne Dopsie & The Zydeco Hellraisers

Sunday, July 18
3pm – 5:00pm

Dwayne (Dopsie) Rubin hails from one of the most influential Zydeco families in the world. Although inspired by tradition, Dwayne 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 & The Zydeco Hellraisers, at age 19. They also add a bit of rhythm and blues, funk, rock and roll, reggae, and pop to their performances, making them a very versatile choice for any audience. His ability to capture the imagination, heart, and soul of his audience makes Dwayne one of today’s most dynamic performers.
