Zydeco Jamm hosts near capacity crowds late Saturday

Step Rideau was the final act of the 6th Original Zydeco Jamm Festival last weekend. Rideau has risen from third best in the nation (and trying harder) to tied for best in Zydeco with Nooney and the Zydeco Floaters, now Step Rideau has asssembled an awesome manifest of traditional Zydeco with an ecclectic of a throaty, hoarse Southern language in a French accent. This was the first Jamm Fest to be held for two days. Throngs of parking filled the former H.E.B. Pantry lot, and surrounding neighborhood. Features this year included dance competitions, a bevy of venders.
