Mardi Gras is a time of feasts, fun and frolic. Celebrated about forty six days prior to Easter, Mardi Gras is a time when people throw parties, spend time with loved ones and make memories to last for years to come.
If you’re organizing a party or a large get together for these special few days, one of the things you probably need to look into is entertainment. Given that the occasion is about joy and laughter, music would probably be something you want to make arrangements for.
When it comes to Mardi Gras parties and music, we know from experience that live music is the way to go! Further – if you’re considering live music for Mardi Gras, Jazz is the genre we suggest you have played.
How a Live Jazz Band can Contribute to your Mardi Gras Party
You might be thinking we’re just touting jazz because that’s our pride joy and specialty. Mardi Gras is also a day close to our hearts; one we enjoy immensely. We’re going to elaborate on why we think live jazz is where it’s at if you’re celebrating Mardi Gras!
Common History and Significance
Maybe jazz and Mardi Gras are not directly related; however, when it comes to Mardi Gras celebrations in the US, the two do have strong ties to New Orleans! Where New Orleans is considered the birthplace of a lot of Original Jazz music, it is also the location of the first Mardi Gras ever to be celebrated in America.
In a sense, it is due to this that brass jazz bands and Mardi Gras celebrations have gone hand in hand for decades. A cultural and historical relevance that can’t be overlooked!
Keeping with the Spirit
The spirit of Mardi Gras is about art, celebration, creation, fertility and abundance. If you think about it, the same words can be used to describe the spirit of jazz music in part. Lively Dixieland and hot jazz played by big band outfits and marching troupes is a common sighting at many public Mardi Gras festivals.
If you want to bring the same extravagance and novelty to a more private setting, that’s what a jazz band will do for you!
A Treat for All Your Guests
Sure you could have live music playing for your guests but its Mardi Gras! It’s about being fresh, about creating and about adding to what already exists! If you hire a live jazz band for an upcoming Mardi Gras party, you can rest assured that your guests will be thoroughly entertained and the experience the band creates with you will be unique.
From dancing and moving to shouting out of requests, a live band will seriously up the levels of fun and frolic at your Mardi Gras bash!
