    Carrying on his father’s legacy, Buckwheat Zydeco, Jr. now leads the band in his legendary father’s footsteps, finding himself now as the frontman to the celebrated Ils Sont Parti Band– which he'll bring to the Payomet tent on Wednesday, July 10!

    Traveling the world nationally and internationally by his father's side, Sir Reg, as his father would call him, began by playing the rubboard with the band at the age of 17. Seeing the great talent in his son, Buckwheat insisted he open some of his headlining shows while touring, placing him on the Hammond B-3 organ, and strapping on his famous customed monogrammed accordion to belt out a rousing opening song for the show.

    As part of his father's legendary band, Buckwheat, Jr. has shared the stage with some of the greats like Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Willie Nelson, Mavis Staples, Albert Collins, Dwight Yokem, David Hidalgo and Los Lobos, Buddy Guy and many, many more. He has performed for two inaugural balls honoring two United States presidents and is a Grammy Award Winner, Emmy award winner, and five-time Grammy nominee.
