Three bands direct from New Orleans are bringing Mardi Gras to CT! For more than 40 years, the internationally renowned, New Orleans-based Dirty Dozen Brass Band has taken the traditional foundation of brass band music and incorporated it into a blend of Bebop Jazz, Funk and R&B/Soul. In addition to their genre-bending romps and high-octane performances, they are known for collaborations with Modest Mouse, Widespread Panic, Norah Jones and others! New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit Cha Wa radiates the fiery energy of the best features of the city’s street culture. Preservation Hall Jazz Band hall-of-famer, Joe Lastie brings his drumming, along with a full band direct from NOLA for a night of traditional jazz, brass-band songs and gospel. The night is complete with Mardi Gras beads at the door and Hurricanes at the bar!
