Richard Allen & The Louisiana Experience

Zydeco with a heaping of joie de vivre


Richard Allen  "The Godfather of Fun!"


Richard Allen and The Louisiana Experience


"The Louisiana Experience" is a kickin, fire hot, Zydeco band and much more.....It's a night,

an adventure, through the sounds of a "Louisiana Experience"!


As a third generation accordion player, born and raised in Lafayette, LA, I can assure you

you'll hear the real deal with a serious kick. . . 110%.


Your business is our business!


When this band starts to stir things up, you’ll smell the Louisiana gumbo cooking.

This is Zydeco with a heaping of joie de vivre tossed into the mix.

While honoring the long-held tradition of making an Acadian musical brew that has

been passed down for hundreds of years, Richard Allen creates a distinct blend of

nouveau Cajun by incorporating his personal style of accordion.

You’ll know as soon as Richard and his band gets cooking, ‘cause they’re bound

to radiate some heat.


"Oh yeah, baby! Laissez le bons temps rouler!"
