    “Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural leads one of the best bands in America. A down-home and high-powered celebration, meaty and muscular with a fine-tuned sense of dynamics…propulsive rhythms, incendiary performances.” –The New York Times

    Bringing the unique sound of Zydeco into the musical mainstream, Buckwheat Zydeco released the first-ever major label Zydeco album, On A Night Like This, in 1987. Over the course of Buck’s career, he has gigged with everyone from Eric Clapton and U2 to The Boston Pops. The band performed at the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympics and at both of President Clinton’s Inaugurals. Television appearances include National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition, The David Letterman Show, CNN, The Today Show, MTV, NBC News and CBS Morning News. Recently, millions of TV viewers witnessed the excitement when Jimmy Fallon chose Buck to open the final episode of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." Joined by Fallon on guitar and backed by the legendary Roots – they kicked off a rousing rendition of “On A Night Like This.”
