Mardi Gras Mambo presents: Meet Me in New Orleans
Swing out to the hottest stomps and rags from old time New Orleans at Meet Me in New Orleans.
Be transported to a time of glitz and raw glamour as we celebrate the roots of swing music. The Savoy Ballroom exploding in Harlem and the birth of Lindy Hop- neither would have been possible without the special breed of New Orleans musicians who brought their spice and laid the foundation for the big band sound.
Live music from The Dixie Ticklers, The Fallen Heroes and tunes by DJ Lil’ Koko.
There will also be dance performances and the finest gumbo with cornbread and pralines to fuel your late night Lindy frolics
