Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars Cook Up Gumbo of Zydeco, Acadian Stock

Singer-songwriter Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars will be appearing at the Cellar on Thursday, August 16th for a night of cajun roots & blues.

The Vancouver based artist is known for his musical diversity and instrumental skills, playing guitar, mandolin, and fiddle. He writes high energy, cajun-style rockin’ roots and blues, taken from his Nova Scotian French-Acadian roots and blended with the feel of the Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta.

Comeau has released three CD’s: The Hunger (1997); Gary Comeau (1998); and Letters From Eve (2001), and in recent years, has been writing for the film industry. Gary’s song, Marianne was featured (and played by his band) in The Paramount Film Double Jeopardy,starring Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones, and his I Think about You All the Time was featured in Wise Guys (2003).

The Voodoo Allstars have also been heard on CBC television and radio, including a feature on Holger Peterson’s Saturday Night Blues program.
