An intimate venue with only 132 seats, the Arts Council’s Centre for the Arts makes attending a concert feel like being in a cozy home with incredible acoustics. On Saturday, March 16, Zackary Smith and the Dixie Power Trio (DPT), an East Coast premier Louisiana music ensemble, perform at the Centre for a benefit concert. This popular group combines Dixieland, Zydeco and Jazz creating an extraordinary sound that is fun for all audiences.
The group began as a trio featuring Andy Kochenour, Zack Smith and Bert Carlson. Now billed as a “trio of four”, band members include Zack Smith; cornet, accordion, washboard, and harmonica, Andy Kochenour, tuba, Byron McWilliams; drums and Chuck Underwood; guitar.
The band recorded their first album “Out of Control” and started receiving national attention through airplay on National Public Radio. They have performed across the East Coast including the Kennedy Center in D.C. and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Illinois. The band recorded their first live CD, “Let’s All Go Down To New Orleans” and then two more recordings, “The Virgil Sessions” and “Zydeco Dog”.
