Bryant Keith "T" Broussard's fate as a Zydeco musician was sealed long before he was born. He is a descendant of Creole and zydeco music icons.
Bryant recalls childhood memories of playing drums or scrub board while his mother performed for audiences at local dances. It was not until 1993, at the age of 21, that he began to take his talents seriously and established his own band. Since then he has worked with unwavering ambition to achieve excellence in his destined career. Bryant's stage presence exudes a remarkable energy. He has been booked for performances from coast to coast. Some of his performances include both East and West Coast tours.
Bryant has performed in includes the Memphis, Tennessee Beale Street Festival, the Sparks, Nevada July 4th Festival, the Alabama Blues Festival, and the Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival. Other prominent local Louisiana events include the Zydeco Extravaganza in Opelousas, The Cajun Hot Sauce Festival in New Iberia, The Mudbug Festival in Shreveport, and numerous casino performances in Lake Charles, Kinder, Vinton, Marksville, and New Orleans. Some of his musical recordings can even be heard as the background music to promotional radio commercials and a Discovery Channel television program. Accordionist, singer, and songwriter are among several of Bryant's musical talents. He also plays drums, scrub board, and bass guitar. Although zydeco music is Bryant's primary performance style, he also plays traditional Creole music. Bryant released albums titled “Knock, Knock," Git It On, Git It On, "Party Time" "Zydeco Lover” and his latest album “Goin Live” was recently released in February of 2018 and has qualified Bryant as one of the Creole Zydeco nominees in the Zydeco Grammy category.
