1st Annual New Orleans Mardi Gras Crawfish Boil Series
The Boil: hundreds of pounds of bright-red crawfish boiled up New Orleans–style with potatoes and corn, letting a crowd ring in Mardi Gras right (or feeding a single hungry giant)
The Mastermind: Celebrity chef Michael Psilakis, who rounds out the menu with the authentic NOLA eats that earned his restaurant, Anthos, a Michelin star and a James Beard Award nomination.
The Music: swinging, brassy, jazzy, and ready to fill the dance floor
Bro Jo Full Moon Swamp Revue (March 18): raucous, dance-friendly tunes
Breakdown Brass Band (March 19): Fusing dirty funk with hip-hop, this Brooklyn-based outfit features members of bands such as Monophonics, Ikebe Shakedown, Sharon Jones, Streetlight Manifesto, Orgone, and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, among others.
Jambalaya Brass Band (April 1): Take members from the Duke Ellington Orchestra and the Lounge Lizards; marinate them in a blend of gospel, zydeco, hip-hop, and funk; and put them under the spotlights until they start simmering with Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong classics.
Dirty Water Dogs (April 2): This self-described “roots rock supergroup” features members of Tom Tom Club, Loup Garou, and 5 Chinese Brothers.
Black Tie Brass Band (April 8): With a history that extends back to the University of Connecticut Marching Band, this 11-piece brass outfit still keeps in tight step. Today, though, these players prefer bayou standards, original tunes, and jazzed up takes on Top 40 hits to college fight songs.
Funky Dawgz Brass Band (April 9): Improvisation is the key to this horn-driven jazz band. Expect their pulsing rhythms and New York–tinged NOLA sound to fill the dance floor in a snap.
