Zydeco is a live music venue in the historic Southside district of Birmingham, Alabama. As part of their website redevelopment project, they needed new content that was brief, specific, and compelling. The below copy fits the bill by being easily scannable, and containing all the necessary promotional information, while providing enough big names to generate interest.


Since 1989, Zydeco has been a staple in Birmingham’s historic Five Points South business district. The second oldest entertainment venue continually operating in Birmingham, Zydeco prides itself on providing the best in live music, quality food and spirits and a great atmosphere.

Zydeco has a three-level venue that is unique in Birmingham for its ability to host multiple audiences with a variety of entertainment selections – all at the same time.

  • The Zydeco Pub (downstairs) offers televisions, video games, pool tables, Zydeco’s Cajun Kitchen, and a full bar. Periodically we offer acoustic performances or comedy shows in the pub, and we host the Birmingham Vulcans Rugby Team after all of their home games.
