The quintet formed in 1995, playing bayou tunes by Cajun faves like Steve Riley, Chris Ardoin, and C.J. Chenier. Next year, the band has an Australian tour lined up. In the meantime, Maurer hosts a foot-stomping zydeco radio show every Wednesday on WAPS-FM 91.3. There are times when I wonder, What the hell am I playing zydeco in Cleveland and Akron for? laughs Maurer. But itd be kind of sad to stop, because this is the band that I want to be in.
