Four time Grammy-nominated, world-renowned Pine Leaf Boys have made a name by presenting their own brand of Louisiana music with an undeniable youthful exuberance. Hailing from southwest Louisiana, the Pine Leaf Boys, known for their wild shows and thoughtful arrangements, have breathed new life into Louisiana music, reviving ancient songs and bringing them to the bandstand. Described in the New York Times as “…the link that connects the young and the old generations,” and, “the best new, energetic, and fun Cajun band in a very long time,” the Pine Leaf Boys play the old fashioned dance hall standards while making a priority to bring many of the more obscure songs of past masters into their repertoire and play them with gusto.
The Pine Leaf Boys have been invited on six occassions by the U.S. State Department to tour the world and perform in Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Jerusalem in 2009 and again to Latvia, Denmark, and Slovenia is 2010 and a third time in 2012 to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. The variety and energy they exude evolves through their shows, bringing dimensionality to Cajun, Creole, and Zydeco. Their mission is to present the beautiful, powerful music of their ancestors and present real Cajun music to the world to prove that it is still thriving. The Pine Leaf Boys have preserved the traditional Cajun sound, while allowing it to breathe and evolve with those who play it.
