Kevin Naquin & the Ossun Playboys have arrived!

This time, the swamps of southwest Louisiana have given birth to a young, Cajun band that’s definitely ‘the real deal.’ These guys play Cajun music the way it’s supposed to be played, keeping true to their traditional heritage, yet pushing the limits of groove with a mature experimentation that’s guaranteed to keep you dancing.

Kevin Naquin & the Ossun Playboys pack the dance floor - every time - with his pumping accordion rising like steam from the hot gumbo he calls ‘the Ossun Playboys.’

The Ossun Playboys have released multiple award-winning albums and their live shows have earned them numerous prestigious awards from the Cajun French Music Association. Kevin Naquin & the Ossun Playboys and their pulsing two-steps and historical waltzes are bound to keep your dancing shoes workin’ and sweat on your brow! True to their Cajun background, the Ossun Playboys perform traditional tunes, but they also like to experiment by pushing the limits of Cajun music with their unique mixture of old and new.
