Jersey Blues kissed by the Zydeco

The bands music cites a variety of influences, infusing Gulf Coast, Zydeco, Rock, Blues, Country & Honky-Tonk, at times creating a "JerZydeco" concoction.

The VooDUDES are all about big fun. That fun echoes across 22+ years of playing festivals, concerts, clubs, etc. in 14 US States, as internationally. The band's sound comes from their love of American Roots music from the Gulf Coast. Blues, Rock, Country, Zydeco and R&B grooves are guaranteed to make hands clap and feet stomp.
