Bidi Bidi Banda
- Bidi Bidi Banda: a tribute to ’90s pop star Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, a.k.a. the “Queen of Tejano Music,” who Billboard magazine named the top Latin artist of the 1990s
- The Bidi Bidi Banda beginnings: Lead vocalist Stephanie Bergara grew up in Austin listening to Tejano radio. She dreamed of performing while singing into a hairbrush and sporting her mother’s red lipstick—a look Selena would almost certainly have approved of.
- The Bidi Bidi Banda band: an eight-member outfit featuring some of Austin’s most-talented Latin musicians, complete with a trumpet, saxophone, keyboards, and violin
- The Bidi Bidi Banda brawn: The band flexes its musical muscles in a set packed with interpretations of Selena’s greatest hits (like “Como La Flor”) while the crowd sings along and does the famed “washing machine” dance.
- Also appearing: DJ Javi Reyes
The Fine Print
About House of Blues New Orleans
At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no fewer than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
