The city of Kent Spotlight Series has rescheduled the Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys concert for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 21 at the Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center, 10020 S.E. 256th St.

The concert was cancelled Jan. 20 because of icy weather.

Over Broussard's 40-year career (he started playing drums in his father’s renowned band at the age of 8), he has gained the reputation as one of the greatest accordion players and vocalists to come out of the Creole culture. Broussard sings with emotion and soul, and his instrumental prowess includes range seldom seen in Zydeco.

The New York Times lauded the Creole Cowboys as “fabulous: you start moving in your seat as soon as their rhythmic, rich melodies flood the theater."

Tickets are $28 general, $26 for seniors ages 55 and older and $20 for youth ages 25 and younger.
