Jude Taylor and His Burning Flames at Opelousas Music and Market, Sept. 17, 2010
These photos of Jude Taylor and His Burning Flames were taken Friday, Sept. 17, at the first fall 2010 event in the Opelousas Music and Market Series, which features South Louisiana music along with vendors who sell local produce (a different item is featured each week).

The City of Opelousas web site provided a few details about Jude Taylor: “Grand Coteau native Jude Taylor spent his early days shadowing and singing background vocals for artists like Buckwheat Zydeco, Clifton Chenier and Marcel Dugas. After playing at local clubs and honing his skills, Jude formed Jude Taylor and His Burning Flames. He plays a captivating blend of soulful R & B, blues and Zydeco and has toured from Florida to British Columbia, playing major festivals and cultural venues.”

His son Curley Taylor, who now head the band Zydeco Trouble, used to play drums in his father’s band.
