Donna Angelle and her Zydeco Posse

Presented by St. Martinville Parish Tourism


DONNA ANGELLE is a veteran and a staple of the American south who, after overcoming devastating injuries from a 1994 car crash, has been steadily building her music career through hard work, perseverance, and sheer talent. 

The Breaux Bridge, Louisiana native was a bit of a prodigy, learning clarinet, saxophone, viola, and flute as a child. By the time she was in her early 20s she was playing in the hottest bands in the south. Once she formed her own band she started working seven nights a week until a serious car crash took her out of the music business for several years.  When she recovered enough, she formed another band in 1994, merging hip-hop, soul and zydeco. Several record deals followed, resulting in regional radio hits and a moving her to the top of the zydeco circuit. 

Ever since then she has steadily released albums, each one bringing her more attention and success. Following her return from a tour in Europe, she recently finished her sixth album titled GUARANTEED LOVER, guaranteed to get you on your feet and into the groove.
