Ronnie Matthews and Throwdown, Liberty Theater, Jan. 14, 2017
Although Ronnie Matthews and Throwdown have been performing their version of Zydecajun music at venues across Acadiana for many years, including Mardi Gras in downtown Eunice, Jan. 14, 2017, was their first time at the Liberty Theater. The photos in this set were taken during the first half of the show.

In addition to Ronnie Matthews on accordion and vocals, the band at the Liberty included Tim Fruge, keyboard; Tim Picard, guitar; Brennan Cormier, bass; and Jeremy Richard, drums.

Here’s a link to Dan Willging’s review of the band’s 2005 CD, “Just Me and the Bottle,” released in 2005 by Acadiana Records:
