Introducing: Cajun Dance Party

Cajun Dance Party are a 5-piece band based in London, England. They consist of Daniel Blumberg, Robbie Stern, Max Bloom, Will Vignoles, and Vicky Freund. The band came into being when guitarist Robbie Stern invited Daniel Blumberg (vocals), Max Bloom (bass guitar), William Vignoles (drums) and Vicky Freund (keys) to start playing together, originally to participate in their school 'battle of the bands' in 2005. In their first few band practices, the 15 year olds began working on their first four songs, 'The Next Untouchable', 'Colourful Life', 'Amylase' and 'Buttercups', which were recorded as demos and submitted to their myspace site shortly after.

The band played their first few shows at the West London all ages club night 'Way Out West', performing in the bar beneath Brentford FC football stadium. Cajun Dance Party's debut album was entitled The Colourful Life, and was released in April 2008. The album consisted of 9 tracks, with singles from the album including 'Colourful Life', 'The Race', and 'Amylase'. The album was given 4/5 in the Guardian. Currently, the band are working on their second album due for release in 2009.
