Zydeco Valentine's Dance in Shoreline - Saturday, Feb. 14th

I heard about this event on 91.3fm KBCS, the radio station of Bellevue Community College. A web search turned up the following information from

Corey Ledet & Cedryll Ballou from Houston, TX (with Skye, Randy, and Tina from the Zydeco Locals) will be rockin' your Valentine's (and celebrating MaryLee, Deanna and Rita’s birthdays!), at
Jay's Dance Experience Ballroom (18005 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline 98133, above Highland Ice Arena), 8-11pm, $15. Free Zydeco dance lesson 7:30-8pm. Bring treats to share.

Cedryl puts on a show that you will talk about for a long time and Corey "Lil Pop" Ledet performed at the Liberty Theater June 4, 2005, dressed like the King of Zydeco, the late Clifton Chenier -- but more to the point, he played Clifton's legendary music with both skill and soul, producing a sound that invited the audience to close their eyes and imagine the King was himself once more on the stage. Corey and his band got a standing ovation.
