Laissez les bontemps rouler! We've got a rich gumbo of a playlist fo'ya, mostly based out of New Orleans and its rich tradition of jazz, blues, R&B, and Cajun/Zydeco. But of course the Mardi Gras tradition extends well beyond the Crescent City, so we'll hear from the bayous and ports elsewhere along the Gulf Coast, too.

Asheville's fun Empire Strikes Brass comes from the New Orleans Brass Band tradition of second-line parades and deep moving grooves reminiscent of old school funk. So let's get WNCW's Mardi Gras party started a week early! They play Isis in West Asheville on Friday the 1st.

Celebrate Mardi Gras with WNCW this Tuesday!
