COLBY Latiolais and his band Ambush is steadily becoming one of South Louisiana’s most popular musical acts having been featured in “The Times of Acadiana’s Best Of “for the past several years.
They appear regularly at festivals and music venues throughout Louisiana and Southeast Texas and have a very diverse song selection. They offer a mixture of classic and new country, zydeco, Cajun and classic rock, along with some of COLBY’s own songs, which are played regularly on radio throughout south Louisiana region.
COLBY’s latest release is titled “You Ruined Her Chances”. COLBY wrote this one after he had some hard time relationships. “I knew what I was feeling, and I knew there were others out there experiencing the same thing.” “I just thought maybe we could share our heartache together, LOL”
COLBY reports that there are some more country tunes coming. “We are currently in the studio with Producer, Rick Lagneaux, which almost guarantees more good country music.
COLBY also feature some good Cajun and Zydeco music. He began sharing his interest in playing the accordion with his parents late in his high school years. But before they would purchase one, he had to prove both his ability and ambition. His great Uncle gave him an old accordion and that is how he got started. COLBY finished his EMT training and began working with Acadian Ambulance and partnered with none other than: Jamie Bergeron!!! After many night shifts, very little sleep, and minimal down time, he learned through Jamie, how to play three different styles of Cajun accordions.
Although he is not affluent with Cajun French, he does understand enough to allow him to perform many of the standards both old and new.
