|Description:||WICN Public Radio, in collaboration with The Theatre District Alliance, presents Jazz at Sunset, featuring Nathan Williams and the Zydeco Cha Chas. The area behind the theatre will be transformed into an outdoor, picnic-style concert venue to include food trucks, cash bars and Theatre District Alliance exhibits promoting the various businesses and cultural organizations in the neighborhood.
Nathan Williams formed The Zydeco Cha-Chas back in 1985 and since then has brought his unique take on this regional southern Louisiana music to all corners of the globe. From Lincoln Center in New York to The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Nathan's music has crossed all barriers to speak to the very heart of his audience.
Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and honored in 2015 with the Zydeco Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award, the Cha-Chas have been voted the top Festival Band in the country according to the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism and USA Today, and they won the coveted Big Easy award for Best Zydeco Band for several years running.
Nathan and his band have been featured in the New York Times, Essence and People magazines and on the cover of USA Today. They've appeared in films like In The Electric Mist, as well as the soundtrack sharing credits with Michael Doucet and Buddy Guy and The Kingdom of Zydeco, and worked with artists as diverse as Cyndi Lauper on the album Creole Bred.
Keepers of the Zydeco Flame, they are committed to keeping their Creole heritage alive.
