"A dance king equipped with a gripping groove", Nathan Williams plays zydeco, the fast and furious accordion-driven dance music of the Creole people of Southern Louisiana. "The Cha Chas takes the audience not only to another region, but to another time - emphasizing that the spirit of zydeco still burns hot." (Blues Revue)

Son of the great King of Zydeco, C.J. Chenier's interest in the music of his ancestors grew until he joined his father's legendary Red Hot Louisiana Band on the road. After his father's death in 1987, C.J. assumed leadership of the band and has continued to develop his own personal accordion style.
