Nathan & the Zydeco Cha-Chas Bio

Nathan Williams Sr. formed The Cha-Chas back in 1985, and since then has brought his unique take on this regional South Louisiana music to all corners of the globe. Growing up in a Creole-speaking home in St. Martinville, Nathan eagerly sought out the music of early Zydeco legends and decided to try his hand at the accordion himself. Today he, too, is widely acknowledged as one of the longtime Zydeco masters. Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2005, he was honored with the Zydeco Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The Cha-Chas have been voted the top Festival Band in the country, and have won the coveted Big Easy award for Best Zydeco Band for several years running.

The band is very much a family affair, and the music of Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas is the expression of a remarkable South Louisiana family. Keepers of the Zydeco Flame, they are committed to keeping their Creole Heritage alive and thrilling audiences with their authentic Zydeco sound
