A C.J. Chenier show is not your run of the mill concert. But then again, C.J. Chenier is not an average musician. The famed accordion player is the son of the Grammy Award-winning "King of Zydeco" and Louisiana musician, Clifton Chenier.  C.J. keeping his father’s legacy alive, with a modern, soulful twist of his own.

His shows are not just musical perfomances, they’re dynamic stories in which he explains the history of the Chenier involvement in Zydeco music. Head to The Attic this Sunday night night to witness history in the making. 

C.J. Chenier. Sun., Jan 5. 8 p.m. $30. The Attic at Rock Brothers Brewing, 1510 E 8th Ave., Tampa. atticcafe.net\
