Terrance Simien in Warner Bros. The Lucky One

(Austin, Texas) “Me and the boyz have an original song, “Dance Everyday,” in one of those monster budget Warner Bros. Pictures movies,” says Terrance Simien. The Lucky One, starring Zac Efron, will be in theaters across America on April 20, 2012.

Based on a Nicolas Sparks novel and directed by the remarkable Scott Hicks, who won an Oscar for his film Shine, Terrance and the Zydeco Experience will be seen performing “Dance Everyday.” As well, Terrance's version of the zydeco standard, “Uncle Bud” is heard in the movie. Simply log onto to listen to his song, watch the show, and become experienced. Watch the movie trailer at
Terrance feels, "It was an honor and a privilege to work with director, Scott Hicks and that Scott felt zydeco has enough reach and appeal to be used in a movie that wasn't about Louisiana.”
Terrance Simien is blessed with an extraordinary talent that expresses the deepest human emotions through the original instrument, his voice. His eclectic fusion of zydeco takes you on a multicultural musical tour of the world. Incorporating diverse music styles he creates a hypnotic blend of Zydeco-Roots-New Orleans Funk-Reggae-flavored-Afro-Caribbean-World music.
