"Wayne & Same Ol 2 Step are the link. They are the band that isn’t going to get a big head. They will keep it old zydeco and rooted but kick the hell out of it and keep zydeco fresh and moving for the younger fans and keep the traditional form of zydeco alive for a long time."
-Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin’ Cajun’s
"Wayne & Same Ol 2 Step are consistently among our top three draws. We are always being asked when they will be playing again. They maintain a high level of energy and have everyone on the dance floor. They do not take a break, and play non-stop for three hours. That keeps our patrons engaged and dancing. They are a highly professional band to work with. They arrive on time and play on time, and they also always give us a “few extra minutes” to make sure everyone gets their money’s worth."
- Grant Street Dancehall
"Wayne is always ready to get the crowd moving and never lets his fans down. Now that’s a recipe for some good home- cooked dancing."
