The Bunkhouse Boys play Cajun/Creole roots music. Louisiana rice fields, wind over the prairies, gumbo cooking, and back porch music are close to their hearts. They discovered each other in a bunkhouse in Ashokan, New York, while studying the music they all love.
The Bunkhouse Boys are Mark Sagar on rhythm guitar… who brings his life-long love of Country Blues to the band; Roger Weiss playing soulful Cajun fiddle; and Laren Droll… who brings his many years of playing Creole Zydeco accordion. Their beautiful vocals and locked-in rhythm produce the authentic sound of the bayou. Their music makes you want to dance and tugs at your heart.
Hurricane Relief Benefit: “Our hearts go out to our friends in flood torn Louisiana and Texas. You have seen the devastation. Here is a way you can help… This week’s Rosendale Cafe Cajun dance will benefit Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. All proceeds will go to organizations aiding in the effort, including http://HoustonFoodBank.org, http://hands.org, and http://ghcf.org (Greater Houston Community Foundation). Thanks!”
“Kick-ass accordion and fiddle, soulful vocals and rock-steady rhythm make this authentic, high-energy Cajun group high on my list of favorite dance bands.” –N. Berlind
