Chubby Carrier and The Bayou Swamp Band
Chubby Carrier and The Bayou Swamp Band
Cut Chubby Carrier and he bleeds glossy metallic shades of purple, green and gold.

Church Point is 100 miles from New Orleans, but this Louisiana country boy was raised to have Mardi Gras on his mind.

And strapped to his chest.

Like his daddy and granddaddy before him, the 36-year-old is shouldering the family tradition: Take a squeeze box anywhere and start a bayou party. Carrier and his zydeco accordion will do that.
He'll have his Bayou Swamp Band on hand to really get the party going.

"Why should I sing something sad? I ain't sad," Carrier and this week in an interview from his home in Lafayette, La.

"I'm spreading the zydeco gospel."

One listen to Carrier's latest, Ain't No Party Like a Chubby Party," and you'll wonder if, A. he's spent too much time near the accordion bellows in an enclosed space, or B. southwest Louisiana is one magical happy-go-lucky land.
