  • Louisiana-born Stanley “Buckwheat” Dural first began playing funk music in 1971 with his 15-piece band, Buckwheat and the Hitchhikers. In 1976 he was brought on tour as an organist with zydeco king Clifton Chenier, who taught Dural accordion and inspired his shift to zydeco music.
  • In 2009 the band released the Grammy-winning album Lay Your Burden Down, which features special guests Trombone Shorty and Sonny Landreth. describes it as “an album that works both at the dance party and still rings clear the next day when maybe it’s time to dig deeper and do a little thinking.”
  • Since its formation in 1979 Buckwheat Zydeco has performed with many legendary artists such as Eric Clapton, has performed at prestigious events including both of President Clinton’s inaugurations, and has been featured on numerous film soundtracks including The Waterboy and The Big Easy.
  • “Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural leads one of the best bands in America. A down-home and high powered celebration, meaty and muscular with a fine-tuned sense of dynamics.”—The New York Times
