The Pine Leaf Boys — out of the heart of Cajun country in southwest Louisiana — take the traditional and turn it up to 11. The group doesn't stress out too much about trying to put some clever spin on Cajun music, but instead focuses on playing tight, playing fast, and playing for a good Saturday night dance. The Pine Leaf Boys have been nominated for Grammy four times, and are well-recognized in Cajun and Zydeco circles for their energetic shows and for breathing new life into a dusty genre.
The Pine Leaf Boys play Saturday, November 7, at Harmony House, 58 East Main Street, Webster. Cajun dance lessons will start at 7:15 p.m.; performance starts at 8 p.m. $15-$18. rochesterzydeco.com; pineleafbboys.com.
