The Krewe of Orpheus is throwing a musical party in honor of New Orleans' tricentennial at the annual Orpheuscapade Gala. 

"New Orleans will have only one Tricentennial," Krewe of Orpheus Captain Sonny Borey. "We decided to honor our 300th birthday by throwing a party that is any music-lover’s dream featuring local musical legends.” 

The list of artists includes Deacon John, Trombone Shorty and Irma Thomas.  Other headliners could still be added as well.  Here's the lineup as it stands now:

·      Deacon John

·      Trombone Shorty

·      Irma Thomas

·      Al “Carnival Time” Johnson

·      Amanda Shaw

·      Dixie Cups

·      Big Freedia

·      Bonerama

·      Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes

·      Flowtribe

·      No Limits

·      Party Crashers


The Krewe founded by Harry Connick, Jr. calls it, "One of the most exciting post-parade bashes in history."

The gala takes place after the Orpheus paraded on Lundi Gras.  That's Monday, February 12th this coming Carnival season.
