The Sound of Mardi Gras
From Dixieland to Swing, Zydeco to Swamp Pop, Party Mixes to House music. The French Quarter has it all. Our masquerade will take you on a journey though the various sounds you'd hear in a wild night of Bourbon Street! Bon Temps!
The Masquerade music has been billed in a way that would feel like a long night out in the french quarter. Traditional sounds and party music at first but as the masquerade rages into the night the artists are more electronic and esoteric!
We're going start off with a more traditional feel with Zydeco and Swamp Pop, then move into dixieland jazz. After the band gets done we'll have DJs playing Top 40s dance and party music. Then as the clock winds down and all the creatures of the night come about the music will flow more underground and esoteric, like the late night parties of New Orleans.
Freelance Saxophonist Mike Cameron and his group tee ‘Mike Cameron Collective’ is known for bringing jazz to all the hot spots in the Tulsa area! Mike Cameron has performed with Frank Sinatra, the Count Basie Orchestra, the Temptations, and several other prominent acts. The collective is featured often in the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of fame and performs weekly at Hodges Bend, Cellar Dweller, and the daily grill.
For the Masquerade they are bringing traditional Dixieland jazz back into style! This 6-piece band will feature a sax, clarinet, trombone, bass guitar, drums, and piano. They’ll belt out hot jazz sounds that originated in New Orleans in the early part of the 20th Century. It’s a sound synonymous with the French Quarter, no matter where you go for Mardi Gras the experience would be incomplete without a little Dixieland Jazz!
