Corey Arceneaux & The Zydeco Hot Peppers at The Tin Pan

June 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


There are many accordion players and a few great ones, but good luck finding more than one or two who can make a piano accordion talk, rejoice, and cry like Corey Arceneaux can. Labeling him is a challenge because of his creative and versatile style.

Corey grew up in Carencro, Louisiana, and started his first band in high school. His sixth and latest studio project, “I’ve Been Country” came 30 years after his first release, “Hot Pepper” and it brings in various dance styles while sticking to his strong Creole roots as a member of one of Zydeco’s first families, led by his late great uncle Fernest Arceneaux, who was also known as the “New Prince of Accordion” for his skilled playing. Corey’s great grandfather and Fernest’s father, Ferdinand Arceneaux, was also an accordionist who performed Creole “Lala” music (a predecessor of Zydeco) at house dances.

The talented Zydeco Hot Peppers are Ben Holmes (drums), Doug Bell (guitar), Gene Monroe (bass) and Pat Clark (percussion & scrubboard). Ben Holmes has played Zydeco since the 1980s. He’s toured and recorded with Al Rapone and the Zydeco Express and the Grammy-winning Queen Ida and the Bon Temps Zydeco band. Douglas Bell is a veteran musician in the DC area and has performed across the eastern U.S. for nearly 25 years. Gene Monroe comes from a musical family and has been a working bassist for the past 30 years. Pat Clark is a professional drummer, guitarist and professional music teacher from Silver Spring, Maryland.
