Zydeco Dots
Best Zydeco

In terms of mainstream exposure, these Dots (not polka but zydeco -- get it?) have ruled the roost on the local scene for years. Originally founded by Tee Potter and Mike Vee, this progressive zydeco band went through several accordionists (remember that succession of Pierres?) before linking up with the amazing Leon Sam a few years ago. Since then they've really hit their musical stride. Son of Creole legend Herbert "Good Rockin'" Sam, Leon squeezes that music box and soulfully sings in a style that evokes the late King of Zydeco (and former Houston resident) Clifton Chenier. Check out their latest CD, Tribute to Clif, or catch them live for proof. Either way, you'd better lace up your dancing shoes. -- R.W.
