When Geno Delafose takes the stage, audiences can’t help but move to the steady Creole groove.

The son of famed zydeco accordionist John Delafose, Geno joined his father’s band the Eunice Playboys at age 8. He graduated to performing on the accordion in the early 1990s, opening for the Eunice Playboys and developing a unique style while serving as a “bearer for traditional zydeco” (from the PBS/Smithsonian documentary “A River of Song”). Keeping the tradition alive and well since his last SMF performance in 2011, this highly-anticipated return of him and his band French Rockin’ Boogie will keep the Charles H. Morris Center dance floor groovin’ all night!
