The Detroit Party Marching Band is an ever-evolving collective of Detroit area musicians devoted to unanticipated revelry, driving jams, and the power of the un-amplified horn blast. They believe the essence of music is celebration and joy. They’re devoted to deploying impromptu jams to celebrate life and community in & around our dear city of Detroit. The group has been featured in the New York Times, The Detroit News and was recently profiled by French journalists on the blog “Detroit je t'aime.” (http://bit.ly/uvMmMw)
In February, the 25-piece ensemble is preparing for its most ambitious excursion yet: a trip down the mighty Mississippi to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. The band will be bringing Detroit pride to the streets of the Big Easy, performing in parades, clubs, and backyard celebrations.
Before departing, the band is bringing a bit of New Orleans soul to Detroit, transforming PJ’s Lager house into a blowout masquerade party! The show will feature the glitter-drenched electro-pop of Charlie Slick, the idiosyncratic hip hop of Passalacqua, the whimsical shadow puppetry of Patrick Elkins, the footwork mastery of Detroit’s Run Jit, curated New Orleans dance music, plus myriad local sideshow acts and local intrigues, a ceremonial king cake cutting at midnight and the Cajun cooking of PJ Ryder. And, of course, a rare billed performance by the Detroit Party Marching Band themselves.
Don’t miss it!
