Deuce of Hearts is the dynamic father-son duo Gary Thibodaux and Travis Thibodaux.

Deuce of Hearts produced a cassette single by the same name in 1994.  Travis was literally a kid of 12 years old writing and playing his own songs.  Gary was a seasoned vocalist, songwriter, and song-stylist, having worked with numerous bands in the New Orleans-South Louisiana area.  The plan then was to sell the single at their shows.  That was then.  The single quickly gained notoriety with the fans and word of mouth spread across the region bringing larger crowds at every show.  Gary’s original, "Time and Time Again", was an example of his early influences, including Fats Domino, Joe Barry, and Warren Storm.  Travis’ "Take My Hand" displayed the influence of his father and his own unique style.  The single, which had already put them on the top 10 play list of local radio stations, caught the attention of Jin Records out of Ville Platte, Louisiana.  The idea was born to produce an album.  Jin Records put Gary’s "Time and Time Again" on a CD compilation entitled "Swamp Gold 4" which is easily found doing Internet searches keying on "swamp pop" or "south Louisiana music".

The release of the first album "Oh What a Night" quickly changed the lives of the group.  Soon after the release of the album ZydeCajun star Wayne Toups recorded three of the songs from the CD including "Oh What a Night", "Ma Belle, Ma Belle", and "Take My Hand.”  "Take My Hand", written by a 12 year old Travis Thibodaux, gained a great deal of success for Toups who swept up the #1 spot on 20 radio stations throughout South Louisiana and Texas.  The ZydeCajun star also sang the song on TNN’s Prime Time Country.  As Wayne Toups himself put it at a recent concert, "here is the greatest song Wayne Toups ever recorded."

Gary Thibodaux and Travis Thibodaux otherwise known as the Deuce of Hearts.  Gary T. and Travis T. play swamp pop, cajun french, blend of south Louisiana, cajun red hot, tabasco flavored music.

Gary and Travis picked up awards from a magazine publication in Lafayette, Louisiana in which they landed the "Song of the Year" for "Take My Hand", and "Duo of the Year”.  In awards in Baton Rouge, the duo won "Male Vocalist of the Year"- Travis T, "Peoples Choice", and "Entertainers of the Year”.  On went the duo to Nashville where they were presented "Most Promising Vocalist" and "Most Promising Writers”.  The attraction of major record label Giant Records brought the group and audition in South Louisiana that proved to be extremely successful.  Deuce of Hearts and Giant Records stay in close contact today.

The Deuce of Hearts have proved in their 11 years as a hard working team that they are a musical force in the area.

Deuce of Hearts has released the long awaited second album titled "Long Overdue”.
