  Balfa Heritage Week
   Geno Delafose and French
   Rockin' Boogie ● April 24, 2006 
Click here to go to the first page on the 2006 Dewey Balfa Cajun and Creole Heritage Week.

Geno was a little late getting started because band members were delayed on their way to Chicot, but once they took the stage the dance floor quickly filled. No one can sit still when Geno is playing his own unique version of Zydeco that draws deeply on Creole traditions and also includes his interpretation of a few Cajun and swamp pop standards.


Eric Fahey, shown in the the yellow shirt, asked all of the members of the Balfa family who were there Monday night to help out with the event to come on stage to be recognized.
