Lisa Haley & The Zydekats

This year’s Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival was a huge success due in part by the performers and musicians like Lisa Haley & the Zydekats. For those unfamiliar with this group, here are some little bits of information.

Lisa Haley has performed at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival for 20 years. This past festival, she played both nights. She is a 4th generation fiddler and she just happens to have an electric blue violin that she named Louie. She plays Cajun and Zydeco music and has a voice that is described as “cornbread”. Her hope is to make this type of music fit in the 21st century. Not only can she play the fiddle but she can sing, dance, and she is a songwriter.

Haley, a Grammy® nominated artist, hit the Billboard Chart in 2008 with “King Cake” and in 2011 with “Absolutely Live!” With her newest album titled Joy Ride, she hopes to take this type of music to new heights.

Not only does she perform at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival, she also performs at festivals in more than 20 countries.
