Gloria Powers, a long time supporter of the art, music and culture of New Orleans, passed away on February 7th. She will be sorely missed by the New Orleans music community as we celebrate her favorite time of the year.
Like Valentine's decorations out in stores before Christmas is even over, at 'OZ we're already thinking about Jazz Fest, and Mardi Gras is not even here yet! Community Outreach tickets are now available, and check out the official poster featuring Trombone Shorty!
A space for kids to discover their talents and celebrate their own amazing culture: second lines, brass bands, Mardi Gras Indians and more - that's what the Original Big 7 Cultural Division provides. Take the Red Flame Hunters: the Big 7's own Mardi Gras Indian tribe, composed entirely of children (with some mighty grown-up design and sewing skills).
An easy to eat dish that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, we recommend making yourself a large quantity and bringing it out in single servings to the parade route, the Krewe den (for your late-night craft making), or taking the entire dish to your next Mardi Gras celebration. Don't be one of the five people bringing the King Cake, show up with this filling entrée instead!
