Creole du Nord

cajun and zydeco band

“…I highly recommend you advise your attendees to bring their dancing shoes!” ~Happy Venue

 Dedicated to the traditional sounds of Southwest Louisiana, Creole du Nord delivers a lively Cajun & Zydeco groove featuring fiddle and accordion and a rockin’ rhythm section “pour les bonne temps”. Bandleader Mark Palms traced his family roots to Breaux Bridge and now brings the uplifting spirit of Louisiana to the northern great lakes with Michigan’s finest; Billy King (gtr), Walter Prettyman (fid), Carol Palms (bass) & Pete Siers (drums) or Will Osler.  After learning from some of Louisiana’s best… such as Joe Hall, Steve Riley, Blake Miller, Jesse Lege, Ray Abshire, Walter Mouton and more, Mark and the band Creole du Nord have been playing festivals, dances, and clubs across Michigan and the midwest.
