Dwight Carrier popularly known as, “The Black Cat” has become one of the most exciting Zydeco Accordionist of this era. He is deeply rooted in the “Carrier” family tradition, where music has always been a passion and implemented into much of their families past time. He embraces both his family tradition as

-

well 

as his Cajun Creole Culture. Dwight has always had a unique style that infuses his zydeco, blues, country 

and R&B influences.

Growing up in the small town of Church Point, La in a time where rap music was gaining momentum, 

Dwight’s friends would laugh when he and his brother Joseph chose not to take that route. Initially, Joseph 

played the accordion while Dwight played the drums. It was after many relentless hours of practicing with 

his brother that Dwight grew restless. He yearned to play the accordion. It was with much practice, passion 

and determination that Dwight not only learned to play the accordion but was he able to play it well. He and 

Joseph switched instruments and it Dwight Carrier & the Zydeco Rockers was created. 

In 1988, at the age of 14, Dwight recorded his 

R&B 45 LP entitled “My Baby Left Me”, earning him local 

status, playing frequently on the zydeco circuit at trailrides and dance halls in and around the state of Lou-

isiana. He realized that his friends were no longer laughing, but instead, were asking him to teach them to 

play.

In 1991, Dwight Carrier was asked to become a member of the Creole Zydeco Snap Band headed by Creole 

& Blues musician Warren Ceaser. He accepted the opportunity and became the groups’ accordionist. 

Dwight traveled with the band extensively around the world and for several years making appearances at 

the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. On the 1995 CD entitled “The Crowd Pleaser”, Dwight released 

two more recordings, “Zydeco Coteau (Going Down South)” and “Zydeco Shuffle”.

After taking an extended absence from music, Dwight was able to work his way back into his music, play-

ing with his uncle Zydeco Legend, Roy Carrier & the Night Rockers. He is has also had the privilege of 

playing with cousin Troy “Dikki Du” Carrier & the Zydeco Crew, Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic, Hugh 

Robertson & Zydematics, Tony Trahan & Blue Krewe just to name a few while still being the front man for 

the Ro Doggs. Dwight “Black Cat” Carrier and The Ro’Doggs released their debut full length CD titled “It 

Ain’t My Fault” in early spring of 2009.

Dwight is one of the few Zydeco musicians with the ability to travel to a city, pick up a band of local musi-

cians and produce a sound equivalent to that of artist working together for years. The ability to do this, al-

lows him the -flexibility to perform in places that may otherwise, not be economically feasible and still able 

to share traditional zydeco along with treating people to a great time. Dwight is a party band leader and his 

shows have been rated high energy fun. “The Black Cat”, is not the typical zydeco artist as, he draws from 

a wide variety of influences bringing it all home to the most exciting danceable night you’ll ever experi-

ence! He looks forward to playing that “Old Thyme Zydeco”, with just an accordion and a rubboard. 

Dwight has been able to share his musical talents all over the world including places such as; Italy, Sicily, 

Paris France, Central America and many parts of Canada. His influences include everyone from Clifton 

Chenier to James Brown with a little old time Zydeco and R&B for good measure. The “Black Cat” has 

recently returned from a nationwide tour with 2013 Grammy Nominated Artist, Andre Thierry. He has also 

performed with; “The Red Rocker” (Sammy Hagar), former bass/guitarist for James Brown “Robert Wat-

son” and world class musician, Bobbie (Spider) Webb to name a few
