It seems that Louisiana Cajun music brings a real element of passion to this band.   It became the mission of band leader, Mark Palms, who traced his family roots to St Martinville Louisiana, to bring the uplifting spirit of this music to his northern home.  Dedicated to the traditional sounds of Cajun and Zydeco, Creole du Nord’s music captures the groove with fiddle and accordion backed by a tight rhythm, resulting in.. la musique pour les bon temps. 

Band Members: 

Mark Palms, accordion, Walter Prettyman, fiddle, Billy King, guitar, Carol Palms, bass and Will Osler (or Pete Siers), drums

What they say...

Even though it was a cool evening, you were a great way to warm us up in St. Clair, MI last night. You were our #1 band at Thumbfest for the last couple of years.  Thank you for a wonderful night!

Tracy & I both enjoyed meeting and listening to the band last night. We were both homesick for some good boudin and Crawfish ( as you know a Louisiana staple ) as we danced and drank. We look forward to our next chance to get together and "Pass a good time".

Though the temperature outside the tent was cool, the music of Creole du Nord warmed the crowd. We have had nothing but good comments about this highly professional band. If you hire them I highly recommend you advise your attendees to bring their dancing shoes!
