The late great ‘Beau Jocque’ (Andrus Espre) plays the Boozoo Chavis song Motor dude zydeco.  Boozoo helped Beau get started as a musician and there was a friendly rivalry between them, especially after Beau Jocque rocketed to fame and transformed zydeco music.  Unfortunately, this video ends prematurely, but it’s still fun to see the big guy (he was about 6′ 5″).  He played long and hard, with seven to ten minute songs the norm, really making the dancers sweat!
