Music. Excitement. Flamboyance.

That’s what Mardi Gras is all about.

New Orleans’ streets come to life every year with vibrant beads, energetic New Orleans Traditional Jazz, and colorful masks. It’s a celebration of everything. The Crescent City stands for: history, wonder, thrill, and everything good that life has to offer!

As a leading New Orleans Traditional and Swing Jazz band in North Texas and the Metroplex Areas, Razzmajazz Dixieland Band has been performing at Mardi Gras events for over 25 years. Our upbeat music serves as the perfect tune to have the time of your life to.

What is Mardi Gras?

This Christian holiday is a cultural phenomenon all over the world—not just New Orleans. Also known as “Fat Tuesday” or “Shrove Tuesday”, the holiday is celebrated with themed events and festivities all over America.

Street parades, lavish dinners, and the traditional music of Mardi Gras are the perfect way to celebrate this historic holiday.

If you want a day filled with celebrations, music, and festivities, here’s how you can enjoy in true Mardi Gras style:

The colors

The traditional hues of Mardi Gras are green, purple, and gold. This trio of colors pays homage to the classic New Orleans celebrations and is a must-have for any Mardi Gras celebrations.

Make sure your clothes and decorations represent these three colors and everything they represent—justice, power, and faith.

Traditional festivities

For anyone who’s been to a Mardi Gras celebration, there are some festivities that are necessary for the complete experience.

At the forefront of this is throwing beads and trinkets. Beads in the traditional green, purple, and gold colors are generously strewn around everyone’s necks and are a necessary treasure for any Mardi Gras themed party.

Whether you’re celebrating Mardi Gras with your closest friends and family or hosting an office party on the day, foregoing the classic beads isn’t optional.

Similarly, extravagant masks are also a must-have for any Mardi Gras celebration. It’s a day to go all-out and your festivities shouldn’t fall short of the event’s wondrous excitement.

The music of Mardi Gras

The tradition of Mardi Gras is heavily-rooted in the music it’s set to. As the Birthplace of Jazz, New Orleans Traditional Jazz gives you a taste of the authentic Mardi Gras celebrations that originated there.

It’s history you can dance to—just as in its earlier days. New Orleans Traditional and Swing Jazz are characteristic of upbeat tunes and lively rhythms; it’s the perfect music to dance to.

With a symphony of trumpets, trombones, pianos, and saxophones, no Mardi Gras celebration is complete without the iconic music of the time.

Upbeat, fast-paced music that you can dance to is exactly what you’ll get to enjoy when you hire a live band to play New Orleans Traditional and Swing Jazz. Razzmajazz Dixieland Band knows how to bring the party to you in true Mardi Gras style—complete with an elaborate marching band and appropriate costumes.

Donned in marching band outfits and playing the classic Swing Jazz and New Orleans Traditional Jazz tunes for you and your loved ones to dance to, we’ll ensure we give a performance you won’t forget!
