New Orleans… What Can We Say?

Our First Mardi Gras tour and it was EPIC.

The Blue Nile. Tipitinas’ biggest night of the year- Lundi Gras with Galactic.  Meeting the Big Chief. Parading through the Treme and French Quarter with Just Us krewe. Capping it off with two big sets at Hi Ho with the Mardi Gras Indian Orchestra. Thanks to all our hosts, to everyone that came out, and to this wonderful city that has embraced us so… We leave a little frazzled, some of us bedazzled, and with full hearts ready to return to Congo Square on March 24RBParade.
