Ernest James sings lead vocals and plays accordion and front’s the band with joyful abandon. He guides the audience through the traditions of zydeco music. Tony LaCroix sings harmony vocals and plays guitar. He has been recognized as the best roots guitarist in KC. Barry Bob Barnes rubs the scrub board and brings great spirit to the band. Mike Stover plays bass guitar. Jaisson C. Taylor, a veteran on drums, has toured the world and played with the likes of McKinley Morganfield, Koko Taylor, Bill Withers and countless other R&B and Blues greats.
