Elvis Fontenot & The Sugar Bees

Elvis Fontenot 4

Elvis Fontenot and the Sugar Bees were formed in 1992 and have developed their own take on cajun, zydeco, soul and blues which they call ‘Swamp ‘n’ roll’.

In 2006 and 2009 they were voted European Zydeco band of the year at the European Cajun and Zydeco Awards in Holland. Nick Barber won European rub-board player of the year in 2009 and, as the award has not run again, he’s still the undefeated champion!

See them during the 2014 Birmingham International Jazz Festival:
