Join the Mardi Gras party straight from New Orleans, Louisiana with this musical feast revelling in one of the world’s greatest celebrations.
First up, the sounds of Chris Weber’s Banksia Orchestra will transport you to old-time New Orleans and the Jazz Era.
Next, Melbourne’s Horns of Leroy will take you from New Orleans to Fitzroy with one of their trademark energetic brass band performances to bring you to your feet.
Then, join parade leader and musical vanguard Adam Page in the first ever performance of the Piping Shrike Street Band – which you will be a part of! If you play an instrument, bring it along, and if not then get your hands and vocal cords ready. There will be easy musical parts for everyone to learn before we take to the streets for a musical parade through the West End. Then it’s back to the Nexus beer garden to continue the party with Adam Page spinning NOLA classics on vinyl.
It’s a street party brought straight from the Bayou to the banks of the Torrens. Happy Mardi Gras y’all!
