I'm a washboard player/percussionist with a trad jazz band (www.thenewwashboardsyncopators.co.uk)and very interested in playing my cajun washboard/scrubboard in a cajun or zydeco band. I'm based in West Midlands, uk. My email address is tony-q@tiscali.co.uk

Why don't you ring some of these people to see if they can advise you.

Near the West Midlands: well there's Rees Wesson over in the Welsh borders(Welshpool way) with Jo le Taxi, and various other outfits. Then there's Greg Stephens and the Boat Band in Stoke(oh,that's me). Then there's Elvis Fontenot and the Sugar Bees(also Stoke). Make cpntact, see what turns up.

Possibly TonyQ is too modest to draw attention to himself: or maybe he hasn't mastered Mudcat's link-maker. Here he (and his band) are playing Oriental Man

And here is the Boat Band, looking short of a washboard player

Definately short of a washboard player Greg. :-) Couldn't understand a word of the lyrics :-) Sign him up Greg.

Yes I'm quite new to this this site and its intracies. Although brought up with trad jazz/blues/folk, I'm keen to get involved in Cajun/zydeco
as a pecussionist/washboard player. My email is tony-q@tiscali.co.uk if anyone knows of an opening.

Me too !! Not the washboard, but I am a good Cajon (or Cahon) player,and have recently bought a Schlagwerk "2-in-1" with add-ons ( Heck-stick and Side-kick) and would LOVE to play in a band like that.....something I have wanted to do since watching some very good dancers swinging to the Flatville Aces at the New Forest Arts Centre a few years back ! PS--I live in Oxon/ Bucks area !!

Cajun = Triangle (T'fer)
Zydeco = Washboard (Frottoir)
And dont you forget it!

Welcome TonyQ. The world needs more washboard players (that is, good ones, not like me!).
