Since 1981, two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning artist Terrance Simien, has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is — and is not. Leading his five-piece, highly skilled and well-traveled Zydeco Experience band, Simien has become one of the most respected and accomplished artists in American roots music today. He and his band mates have performed over 7,500 concerts, toured millions of miles to more than 45 countries during their eventful career.
