For over six decades, The Hackberry Ramblers have played a toe-tapping blend of Cajun music and Western Swing, with a dash of Gulf Coast 'swamp pop', rock & roll and classic country. This exuberant sound bursts out of the band's Grammy-nominated album Deep Water, which includes distinguished guests Rodney Crowell, Marcia Ball, Michael Doucet, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore.

Deep Water : The best example of traditional cajun music

"[...]This is really the purest and best example of the Hackberry Ramblers. This cd is an absolute must for any true cajun afficcionado. If you are new to cajun music, the titles and musical style found on this cd are about as close as you will ever come to the type of cajun music you might have heard along the Louisiana Texas border in the 30's."
Just what I had expected.

"After seeing these old-timers perform at the Jazz Fest in New Orleans this year, I had to see if they had any cd's out - and they did! These guys have been playing music longer than I could ever imagine and they look like they enjoy what they do. I doubt that they will ever win any music awards but if you're looking for a fun, cajuny sound this cd has it."
Fun and Pure

"Deep Water by the Hackberry Ramblers is a fun and pure classic cajun album. These guys are excellent musicians with a deep historical connection to their roots and unique sound. If you like roots music and a pure country cajun swing sound you will absolutely love this album.
Doing virtually all of the lead vocals on this album are Glen Croker and Johnny Farque. The entire band is very versatile and have an appreciation and understanding of a host of different sounds. I saw this group live at Ole Miss and they played some Stanley Brothers and Bill Monroe tunes as well. It remians to this day one of the best live shows I have seen. Most of these guys are old as dirt but they act younger than most college students.
This album is very passionate and promotes an authentic strip downed sound. If you are tired of over-produced and cookie cut country sounds definitely check this album out. Some of the tunes that stand out are "Deep Water," and "Hip et Taiau." The whole album is really cool."
