Album Review

Though Al Berard was obviously the frontman and lead voice in the band, the Basin Brothers were still an ensemble at this point rather than Berard's backing group. Berard shares several songwriting credits with Danny Collet, who departed the band after this album and formed his own band, the Swamp Cats. The two were an excellent team, and they played off each other very well on both traditional and original tunes. Whatever tensions may have existed between the two of them, they were indistinguishable amid the torrent of lighthearted dance music. Stayin' Cajun is an excellent blend of traditional waltzes and two-steps with new music written in the same styles, and is a keeper for anyone who appreciates the music of Louisiana.

Basin Brothers

This album is great. Pure Cajun tunes give this album true Cajun authenticity. I saw them live back in the early nineties and bought the album right away the next day. I've been hooked on Cajun style ever since.

It's impossible to sit still while Lafayette, Louisiana-based Cajun band the Basin Brothers, are playing. Led by fiddler, guitarist, mandolinist, and vocalist Al Berard, the Basin Brothers transform the traditional music of Louisiana's French Triangle into a highly energetic mixture of two-steps and waltzes. Taking their name from the Atchafayla Basin, where Berard grew up, the Basin Brothers have taken their music far beyond the bayous of Louisiana, appearing at Cajun and folk festivals throughout...
