"Beau Jocque and the Zydeco Hi-Rollers have just about packaged on one disc, everything but the beverages for a great party. This disc explains in layman's terms why you should like zydeco. Last time I played this disc at a party the local police came and turned in their badges and started to boogie. Beau Jocque makes you want to dance even if you're the type that needs to be drunk at a wedding with an open bar! Great Rythms, and an accordian which screams love me louder than the poster of The Accordian King on that poor kid's wall in the movie Fargo! If you have a shaker on hand you'll want to join in.. this c.d.'s shows you why zydeco is so much fun!"
So good it sizzles.

""Git It, Beau Jocque" is almost indescribably good music. It isn't that polite, lightweight zydeco you see in some movies and hear on some CDs. This is gut bustin high energy zydeco with an electric bass line that never quits - powerful and compelling all at once. Bass and accordion driven music of such intensity and life you wonder how they could POSSIBLY survive a whole set. I have several other B.J. CDs that are very good, probably 4-stars, but "Git It..." is something special. This is an incredible document of an amazing music performance - a treasure."
Make plenty of room to boogie with this one!!!

"This is the first zydeco CD I ever purchased after seeing Beau Jocque and his band perform on Jay Leno. I was not disappointed in the least. It's high energy, his band is one of the most tightly woven groups I've ever heard, particularly his bass player, who plays some of the stankest, fonkiest bass ever. This CD will make you dance like an idiot, non-stop. It even got me through the graveyard shift doing data entry at a bank. Just put it on repeat and get ready to boogie. Even if you don't dance, you'll tap your feet, snap your fingers, bob your head, find something to shake or scratch. I must admit I rode around with a tambourine in my car, shakin' it like a fool while sitting in traffic. Go get this one. You'll love it."
