ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dwayne (Dopsie) Rubin hails from one of the most influential Zydeco families in the world. Although inspired by tradition, Dwayne has developed his own high energy style that defies existing stereotypes and blazes a refreshingly distinct path for 21st century Zydeco music. This singer/songwriter and accordionist have performed all over the world since debuting his band, Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers, at age 19. This year, as a tribute to his late father, Rockin’ Dopsie, Sr., Dwayne will record an album of his Dad’s greatest zydeco hits. Dwayne and The Zydeco Hellraisers are currently in the studio recording songs for their 5th album, a follow up to Up In Flames, which was their second album to be prenominated for a Grammy Award. The Louisiana native writes both the lyrics and music for his songs and describes the upcoming album as soulful with a touch of blues and old time zydeco feel. The new album will receive additional air time on Sirius XM satellite radio. The band plans to promote their album by touring both nationally and abroad and appearing on late night talk shows. 2017 will mark their 4th summer promotional tour in Europe, adding to the 50+ international festivals they have performed in the last 2 years. Dwayne Dopsie, age 32, grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, as well as four of the Hellraisers. Dwayne has created the perfect band of hand picked musicians. The washboard player, Alex MacDonald, possesses skill and timing that are unmatched, making him a true musician, not just a marvel holding a washboard. Combined, the band has over 100 years of experience playing Zydeco music and it shows in every performance. The energy, true talent, and exuberance that Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers emit from stage make it obvious that there is no competition for this band. Not only has Dwayne’s band mastered zydeco music, they also add a bit of rhythm and blues, funk, rock and roll, reggae and pop to their performances, making them a very versatile choice for any audience. This Indie artist was named “The Hottest Accordionist” in America for his ability to both work the crowd and pump out musical harmony in grandiose fashion. Dwayne doesn’t confine himself to the stage; he interacts with the crowd, blurring the barrier between performer and audience. Audiences jump to their feet energized by Dwayne’s musical innovation, charismatic performance and sheer, raw talent. In September 2016, he was on "Louisiana Rising" with Harry Connick Jr and Randy Jackson, performing their song for the flood victims called "Rollercoaster" which is one of the songs on their new album “Top Of The Mountain, soon to be released August 2017 .
His ability to capture the imagination, heart and soul of his audience makes Dwayne one of today’s most dynamic performers. 2017 is a turning point for Dwayne Dopsie and The Zydeco Hellraisers, the group has signed a global distribution, marketing, promotion and social media agreement with Crew Entertainment Chief Alfred “Butch” Burch and entertainment industry veteran Dr. Marlin McNichols CEO Angel Dove Global. The organization will be gunning for Dwayne’s second Grammy nomination but eyes on winning this time out for their new album “Top Of The Mountain”. Angel Dove Global CEO McNichols said, “when my associate Butch Burch brought the group to my attention I knew that we had something special.” DDATZHR is sharing, and introducing this unique brand of music to broader audiences across all boarders. The band is booked on festivals throughout the United States and Europe in 2017 and a must see, too, you will be excited as Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers take you into the realm of their on-stage fury aka Dopsie Mania.
