Zydefunk was formed while Charlie was living in Atlanta missing the music from home, Louisiana! It started out as a project playing in Cajun Restaurants and Blues Bars around the area. As the band played more and more getting a positive response Zydefunk soon started playing bigger venues, multiple festivals and getting TV coverage.

In 2010 Charlie moved back to Louisiana. Now living in New Orleans he quickly sought out these artist that were such a great influences on him and Zydefunk. Since the move he has been blessed to have played with each of the artist mentioned above. This is The Velvet Note’s consummate Mardi Gras celebration–join us!
