It’s almost a curse being the son of a famous musician, especially when your daddy is the legendary Buckwheat Zydeco, who elevated Zydeco to worldwide prominence. If you don’t measure up, there will be plenty of folks to cut you down to size. Sir Reginald Dural, understands that but embraced the challenge anyway by assuming the stage name of Buckwheat Zydeco, Jr.

Though Buckwheat, Jr. played in Buckwheat’s band since he was 17 (until the elder’s passing in 2016), he has written songs for years and performed as Buckwheat Zydeco Jr. since 2017. Sir Reginald assumes the role of the lead vocalist, accordion player and keyboardist. Along side him is his father long time friend Bassist and Musical Director of 33 years Lee Allen Zeno. The other Il Sont Partis band members who performed with Buckwheat Zydeco for a quarter century or more includes Drummer Kevin Menard, Guitarist Mike Melchione, Rub Board Patrick Landry and Trumpeter Curtis Watson. Also joining the band Buck’s long time friend Louisiana legend and Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Guitarist Paul “Lil Buck” Senegal.
