A Cajun dance party, with pure, honest honky-tonk and Cajun shuffles.
With influences ranging from traditionalists such as Buck Owens and Johnny Cash, to innovators like Gram Parsons and Dwight Yoakam, this New York City-based five-piece delivers an honest, unflinching honky tonk sound. Not content to remain within the confines of a typical roots band, they also boast a raucous set of Cajun breakdowns and Zydeco shuffles.
Led by Texas-raised Acadian Nick Beaudoing, the Doc Marshalls have quickly forged a reputation for their wildly energetic live shows. Anchored by the fiddling wizardry of Mat Kane and the breakneck accompaniment of Beaudoing’s Cajun accordion, their unique Louisiana grooves have infiltrated the halls of countless alternative rock venues where roots music is seldom heard. Whether performing Bakersfield-style shuffles or traditional Cajun French two-steps, they are determined to make converts of even the most country-shy souls.
The Doc Marshalls are Nick Beaudoing on vocals, acoustic guitar, Cajun accordion, washboard; Mat Kane on fiddle, mandolin, washboard; Will Solomon on lead and acoustic guitars; Terence Murren on bass; and Doug Clark on drums.
“You should go to New Orleans. If you can’t, come hear the Doc Marshalls and bring your dancing shoes.” –Cafe Guide
