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!
Pull yourself off the floor, wipe the glitter from your eyes and get yourself out to a post-Mardi Gras live broadcast with the Brass-A-Holics "Gogo Brass Funk" Band on Thursday February 23. We'll be over at Le Bon Temps with Let's Be Totally Clear, having an awesome, smoke-free time and starting off Lent the right way
I have been missing for two weeks and will be out for one more week. The last two I had work that kept me away from the city on Wednesday. This week while I will be working during the day I will be on Beale Street each evening for The International Blues Challenge. IBC is the largest gathering of blues band in the world.
At this year’s 54th Grammy awards, there were a slew of Louisiana musicians nominated in several different categories. Only one band took home the win (yay, Rebirth!) but you can still join us in congratulating all the nominees here!
