JAMIE BERGERON

about the band

PLAYS AT 9 PM ON FRIDAY, MAY 4


From their humble beginnings in 2000,  Jamie Bergeron & the kickin’ Cajuns have become one of south Louisiana’s most popular musical acts, having been awarded the Times of Acadiana’s Best Cajun/Zydeco Band, an incredible 16 years in a row.  In 2003,  he released his 2nd CD, SQUEEZEVILLE and with the song “Shake It Shake It Baby” quickly established his own unique & recognizable sound. The band continues to create a catalog of music,  releasing 5 more CDs and appear regularly at festivals and music venues along the Gulf Coast.  


Beyond performing,  Jamie is a huge music fan and he’s had success covering songs ranging from 80s MTV star, Timmy T’s “One More Try” to Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You“; Even his remake of “The Cajun Rap Song”has become a crowd favorite. 

 

He has increased his touring schedule and is planning  a new CD, as well as his first Christmas release. He’s created an Internet cooking show (Jamie Bergeron’s Rockin’ Houseparty) and his creation of RCA Cajun Seasoning and Hot Sauce products are in big demand the world over! 

 

 

When he’s not on stage, he can  be found saving lives! That’s right...Jamie’s been a loyal Acadian Ambulance Service's Paramedic for almost 30 years starting out as a "Runner" out of the maintenance dept. at the young age of 16. His love and respect of life and humankind,  shows through in all of his accomplishments.
