We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Theo Bellow, founder and leader of Zydeco Patrol.

After a short battle with cancer, Theo has gone to the great Bayou in the sky. An obituary will be shared here soon.

Theo and the Zydeco Patrol Combines the Blues with Southwest Louisiana Cajun and Zydeco

Creating quite the tasty musical gumbo, THEO & THE ZYDECO PATROL combines a variety of melodic influences from Southwest Louisiana, where Theo grew up and where his musical odyssey began. He starts with the blues, adds traditional Cajun, whisks in some zydeco, and then tosses in a little Caribbean reggae seasoning to top it all off!

With a vibrant sound straight out of Louisiana — from the dance clubs, bayou festivals, crawfish boils, and backyard family gatherings — THEO AND THE ZYDECO PATROL will rock you from a lazy Sunday afternoon right on into "Mardi Gras" with a toe-tapping, heart-thumping, high-octane brand of music y'all won't soon forget!

It's hard to resist their tunes that blend the time-honored accordion and rubboard with guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and often a horn to produce the hot, spicy musical concoction that turns any gathering into a spirited hoedown. So if you're looking for authentic music from the heart of Louisiana that'll get any crowd shaking out on the dance floor, THEO & THE ZYDECO PATROL is the real deal!
