From their humble beginnings in 2000, JAMIE BERGERON & the kickin’ cajuns have become one of south Louisiana’s most popular musical acts, having been awarded the Times of Acadiana’s Best Cajun/Zydeco Band, an incredible 16 years in a row.
In 2003, he released his 2nd CD, SQUEEZEVILLE and the song “Shake It Shake It Baby” quickly established his own unique & recognizable sound. The band continues to create a catalog of music, releasing 5 more CDs and appear regularly at festivals and music venues along the Gulf Coast. Beyond performing, Jamie is a huge music fan and he’s had success covering songs ranging from 80s MTV star, Timmy T’s “One More Try” to Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You”; Even his remake of “The Cajun Rap Song” has become a crowd favorite.
Although with good times and the accolades, have come hardships and harsh reality. In 2008 his family home was completely destroyed in a devastating fire, leaving him with nothing but the clothes on his back. Then in 2016 he was diagnosed with colon cancer. Throughout treatments and surgeries, he still managed to keep the band performing and in January 2018 was given a clean bill of health…
He’s increased his touring schedule and is planning a new CD, as well as his first Christmas release. He’s created an internet cooking show (Jamie Bergeron’s Rockin’ Houseparty) and his own RCA Cajun Seasoning and Hot Sauce products.
But there’s even more:
When he’s not on stage, he can be found saving lives!!!
That’s right…Jamie’s been a loyal Acadian Ambulance Services Paramedic for almost 30 years.
His love and respect of life and humankind, shows thru in all of his accomplishments…
