New Iberians 

 Print Profile Sound Sample 

The New Iberians are a family friendly festival and club favorite from the Pacific Northwest, guaranteed to get the crowd up and dancin'! The band's name comes from the Gulf Coast berg New Iberia, Louisiana, the capitol of Cajun, and center of Hot Pepper Sauce production. Our music is fun, upbeat, and includes original tunes as well as traditional Zydeco, Blues, and good old Rock'n'Roll. Requests are always welcome, and with over 120 years of combined performing experience, we're hard to stump! We can perform as a full 6 piece ensemble or as a duo, trio or quartet, electric or unplugged.
