Celebrate Mardi Gras with the great pianist/vocalist Alvin Waddles. He will play the music of stride piano jazz legends Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, and others. Bassist Marion Hayden, saxophonist Gene Parker, and percussionist Djallo Djakate Keita will join him. Experience an evening of rich jazz history with a creole-style feast during intermission—jambalaya, red beans, rice, corn bread and the Mardi Gras masks and decor will get you in the spirit for a joyous celebration inside one of the most palatial homes.
