Accordionist Andre Thierry grew up in northern California, not Louisiana, but he was surrounded by traditional zydeco music nonetheless. His grandparents hosted French Creole dances at the local church, often bringing in some of the best musicians in the country to play and stay with the family. Thierry started his first band, Zydeco Magic, at age 12, and the name stuck. His reputation has grown along with his talent — in 2013 his collaboration with Corey Ledet, Nothin’ but the Best, was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Regional Roots Music Album category. Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic play at El Paseo Bar & Grill (208 Galisteo St., 505-992-2848) at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 7. There is a $5 cover.
