History was made Friday night at Rock 'n' Bowl in Downtown Lafayette, where brothers, from two different bands, were inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.

The competitive Zydeco quartet: Dwayne Dopsie, Tiger Dopsie, David Dopsie, and Anthony Dopsie were all inducted together.

The ceremony began at 8 P.M., and the brothers performed together until 11P.M.

Dwayne Dopsie said he believes the family's success comes from feeding off of each other.

"That competitive spirit not only helped me succeed, but helped them succeed and kept what my father built relevant in this day and age," explained Dopsie. "28 years later, they still have his band performing and doing great, and I've had my band 23 years still performing and keeping the Dopsie name and the Dopsie legacy and that style alive."
