Gerald Gruenig and Gentilly Zydeco, Zydeco Extravaganza, May 26, 2019
These photos of Gerald Gruenig and Gentilly Zydeco were taken during their late afternoon performance at the 33rd annual Zydeco Extravaganza in Blackham Coliseum, Lafayette, LA, May 26, 2019. As the name of his band suggests, he is originally from New Orleans. As part of his role as a news personality at KLFY television in Lafayette, Gerald Gruenig interviews musicians and promotes musical events on the early morning show Passe Partout. In 2017, with the help of musicians like Horace Trahan, he learned to play the accordion and subsequently put together a band that first performed at the Acadiana Po-Boy Festival in early April 2019. At Zydeco Extravaganza, in addition to performing zydeco hits from Boozoo Chavis, Zydeco Force and other legends , he posed for photos with fans. For more information about Gerald Gruenig, go to
