Welcome! I have been photographing musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond, since 1973. I discovered Zydeco quite by accident at events like the San Francisco Blues Festival and Monterey Jazz Festival. A big fan of all things New Orleans, Zydeco is just one more feather in the cap of the Big Easy. Hopefully, in some small way, sharing these photos will give something back to those who gave me so much. I hope you enjoy these images.
