Nathan & The Zydeco Cha Chas

Monday, February 25, 2019, 3:00 AM


Growing up in a Creole-speaking home in St. Martinville, Nathan eagerly sought out the music of Zydeco originators such as Clifton Chenier. Later, while recovering from a serious illness, Nathan decided to dedicate himself to learning the accordion. That dedication blossomed into an illustrious career, which now spans three decades.The music of Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas is the expression of a remarkable South Louisiana family. Dennis Paul Williams, Nathans brother, brings his jazz-influenced guitar chops to the band. Hes also a well-known painter whose work has been shown throughout the country, and has recently published a collection of his work. The eldest Williams brother, Sid El Sid O Williams, is a Lafayette legend unto himself, and Zydeco would never have survived into the new millenium without him.Nathan formed The Cha-Chas back in 1985, and since then has brought his unique take on this regional South Louisiana music to all corners of the globe. From Lincoln Center in New York to The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Nathans music has crossed all barriers to speak to the very heart of his audience.Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2005, he was honored last year with the Zydeco Music Associations Lifetime Achievement Award. The Cha-Chas have been voted the top Festival Band in the country, and have won the coveted Big Easy award for Best Zydeco Band for several years running.Nathan and his band have been featured in the New York Times, Essence and People magazines, and on the cover of USA Today. Theyve appeared in films like In The Electric Mist and The Kingdom of Zydeco, and worked with artists as diverse as Cindy Lauper, Michael Doucet and Buddy Guy.Keepers of the Zydeco Flame, they are committed to keeping their Creole Heritage alive Cest Si Bon!
