Zydeco Capital Jam in Opelousas, Louisiana

Zydeco Capital Jam is a monthly jam session for zydeco musicians and fans taking place on the second Saturday of every month at the St. Landry Parish Visitor Center at I-49 exit 23, just north of Opelousas.

The Zydeco Capital Jam is the first of its kind in nearly a decade recalling the tradition from when zydeco legend Roy Carrier would jam with other great musicians at the Offshore Lounge in Lawtell. Where better to revive the tradition of zydeco music jams than in the Zydeco Music Capital of the World – Opelousas, Louisiana.

Bring your favorite instrument and jam with fellow zydeco music enthusiasts or sit back and appreciate the music with freshly brewed coffee. Jam sessions are your opportunity to hear your favorite songs, play with friends, and experience the Gumbo For Your Soul that is zydeco music.
