Laissez les bons temps rouler! 

Pronounced  I - KO - YAH-YAH - since 2013, we’ve been flooding dance halls with  the Louisiana-influenced music that gets folks on their the feet – what we like to call “swamp ‘n roll!” 

Enjoy a full plate of our favorite New Orleans flavored dance gumbo—blues & boogie, Cajun/Zydeco, R&B, Second Line, and even a lil’ Country—all delivered with a Mardi Gras vibe! 

From the San Francisco Bay Area, Iko YaYa’s members are longtime veterans of some other bay area favorite dance bands, including California Cajun Orchestra, SwingThing, CZ & The Bon Vivants, The Poyntlyss Sistars, Medicine Ball Band, Mark St. Mary, The California Blue Runners & The Mangroves.
