The morning after last year’s Black Swamp Arts Festival, the buzz was about Dwayne Dopsie.
The scion of a New Orleans zydeco family, Dwayne “Dopsie” Rubin and his band the Zydeco Hellraisers had played two shows — one on the Main Stage and another on the Family Stage, and they burned through both shows.
“Their performance at last year’s Black Swap Arts Festival was just stellar,” Kelly Wicks, the festival performance committee chair, said.
So much so that he decided to bring them back to Grounds for Thought for a free show and recording session.
“To make a live recording work, you really have to have a band that has tremendous performance experience.”
And the Zydeco Hellraisers fit the bill.
The show turned out to be a raucous, high-energy affair with Rubin strutting through the crowd while the band pounded out rocking zydeco beats.
And the two-LP set that resulted captured the tenor of the performance.
