KING OF SWAMP
POP MUSIC FOR
FORTY SIX YEARS
AND STILL COUNTING
Van Broussard is no stranger to the music business. He has had one of the longest running success streaks of any group that we know of. His roots go all of the way back to 1954 when he formed his first rock group way back in 1954, almost a half century ago. Who would have ever thought that this talented individual would be just as popular in the year 2000 as he was in the fifties. It almost takes one's breath away. Van has been recording for Jimmy Rogers' CSP record label for the past several years and has come up with a whopping six CD's and close to a hundred songs recorded. His current band, the "Bayou Boogie Band" is performing all over South Louisiana in the hottest night clubs. If ever a man could lay claim to the term, "Swamp Pop King", it would have to be Van Broussard. Van's big swamp pop band has always featured a large horn section, one of the secrets of his success. Van's sister, Grace Broussard had several chart recordings under the name of "Dale and Grace" in the sixties, including, "I'm Leavin' It All Up To You", and, "We've Got To Stop And Think It Over". After Van teamed up with Jimmy Rogers, his popularity soared and his recordings began to sell big numbers. Van was inducted into the Louisiana Hall of Fame in 1997.
