Creole Cowboyz
“BoyZ-NoyZ” newsletter:

The Creole Cowboyz
From the steamy bayous of Flagstaff Hill to the gator filled estuaries of Semaphore come these good ol’ boys toting their fiddle, accordion, mandolin, rubboard and gittars. Whilst these origins might explain the soggy instruments, the music definitely is not.
The spiritual heartland for the Creole Cowboyz is South Louisiana and the religion is Cajun and Zydeco music. The Creole Cowboyz bring a unique rootsy sound and style of music to our shores with a clear message…’s all about dance and letting the good times roll. As well as originals, the Creole Cowboyz play the popular standards of South Louisiana and covers of past hits that have been beaten into Cajun/Zydeco submission.
With decades of total band experience, the BoyZ are:
‘Dixie’ Darryl Green: Vocals, Guitars, Button Accordion, Harp
Mikey Green: Vocals, Fiddle and Guitars
Brent Miller: Vocals, Electric Bass, Mandolin, Guitars
Peter Harris: Vocals, Electric Bass, Guitars, Drums
Peter Briggs: Vocals, Rubboard, Didgeridoo, Percussion
Steve Oppes: Vocals, Keyboards, Piano and Button Accordions
