Buckwheat Zyedco Portraits Backstage at BB KIngs Blues Club on Feb 4, 2011

I had the opportunity to shoot Buckwheat Zydeco before his gig at BB Kings last friday.  We went down into the club and set up the studio in a storage room backstage.  He was a pleasure and very accommodating to work with.

Buckwheat Zydeco is the stage name of Stanley Dural, Jr. He is one of the few zydeco artists to achieve mainstream success. His music group is formally billed as Buckwheat Zydeco and Ils Son Partis Band, but often they perform as merely Buckwheat Zydeco.  To find out more information about him click on http://www.buckwheatzydeco.com/
