2018 Grammy award nominee and “America's Hottest Accordion” winner, Dwayne Dopsie plays a high energy zydeco that keeps you wanting more. Dwayne hails from one of the most influential zydeco families in the world, as a child he performed at Mardi Gras and a Super Bowl halftime show with his father, Alton “Rockin' Dopsie” Rubin, a pioneer of the genre, who came to mainstream prominence after his work with Paul Simon on Graceland.
