Excellent AUD recording

**mp3 samples provided (as always) in the Comments section**

Despite sitting under an umbrella for the second half of the show on this rainy night, it was a fun-as-usual show by Zydeco-A-Go-Go and the recording actually came out quite well.

The setlist features many well-known New Orleans/cajun/zydeco songs and has some of the band's original songs sprinkled in. Similar to last year's show in Linden, the venue's sound engineer (Wayne) was invited to play fiddle on a few songs.

Zydeco-a-Go-Go has two full-length CDs available and both are terrific. Special thanks to Pete Eshelman for allowing me to document their fine performance. Please check out Zydeco-a-Go-Go if you're in the NJ/PA/DE area and also consider buying the band's excellent CDs if you like what you hear.

If you like this torrent, won't you please take a moment to post a comment on the board? It only takes a moment, and believe me, it takes A LOT longer to prepare/upload a show for others to enjoy than it does to download and run.
