Half Way To Mardi Gras Festival 2014
Join us for the Half Way To Mardi Gras Festival, a great night of music with two great New Orleans Bands: Big Sam's Funky Nation & The Jumpin' Johnny Sansone Band.  

Also included: pre-music beer tickets & a great New Orleans feast of jambalaya, gumbo & BBQ!

Big Sam's Funky Nation is a driving force of urban funk. Ryan White, of the Oregonian, says the band is "tight enough (and hot enough) to turn coal into a diamond!" The band is led by trombone powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls "the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz." Big Sam refuses to let the audience sit still. Between the band's solos, Big Sam's signature dance moves and his distinctive trombone riffs, the energy level is high voltage when this band takes the stage!

New Orleans native, Johnny Sansone, is known for his blistering electric harmonica tone, Award winning song writing, Swamp, Roots, Americana Accordion & Larger then Life stage presence. Johnny's music career has brought him from his early professional years, backing up Chicago blues legends: Jimmy Rodgers, Robert Jr Lockwood, John Lee Hooker. to fronting Ronnie Earl's Broadcasters in the 1980's.  A Juno Award Fifteen Best of the Beat awards, Seven Big easy awards, Johnny continues to forge forward on world wide tours with his band.
