It was only about 8:30 when these photos were taken during the regular Thursday night jam session at Nick's, but there was already a large crowd warming up their dancing feet for Mardi Gras. Kyle Huval on accordion and friends are shown in the second photo from left. Click on thumbnails to access larger photos.
Nick's was already crowded when Travis Matte and the Zydeco Kingpins started at 9. The photos were taken between 9 and 10, while more and more people squeezed in. That's Todd Ortego, aka Zydeco Ortego and the Rev. KBON, addressing the crowd in the second photo from left. In the next photo, female fans dance and wave their hands to the sounds of the hit song "Vibrator." Meanwhile, outside Bradley Venable was providing more great Cajun music (shown in the last photo).
