It's a family trade and there are few families more closely associated with zydeco than the Broussards. Jeffery Broussard (born March 10, 1967) was just 8 years old when he debuted on drums in his father's band, Delton Broussard and the Lawtell Playboys. In the decades since, Jeffery Broussard has been a torchbearer for zydeco, influencing young musicians with a traditional Creole music he learned decades ago.
At the Forefront of Nouveau Zydeco Jeffery Broussard and Robbie Robinson founded Zydeco Force in the late 1980s, a band that became an icon on the zydeco scene at the forefront of the nouveau zydeco movement. The bamd provided a template for a new generation of artists. But Broussard has come full circle in his career. He grew up in the traditional zydeco, brought in a new sound in the 1980s and has now returned to his roots.
