Mardi Gras NYC!

With February just around the corner, that means folks in New Orleans are getting ready for Fat Tuesday and the festivities leading up to it. In other words, Mardi Gras. For those of us unable to get to the Crescent City for this year's festival, there is a bounty of great New Orleans and Louisiana musician coming to The Big Apple. Here are a few highlights. I will be hitting a bunch of these, hope you will too.

Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers with Bonerama - Hiro Ballroom, Sat Feb 18 and Sun Feb 19.

These are the Nolafunk.com Mardi Gras Balls featuring two of the great and unique NOLA artists.

Kermit Ruffins is a trumpeter and singer that is the very embodiement of the "Big Easy." A great entertainer with a laid back style and charm, Kermit has been prominently featured on HBO's "Treme" and is always a good time. He co-founded the Rebirth Brass Band while in High School and has been a prominent New Orleans musician ever since.

Bonerama is a brass funk band fronted by three trombonists (the bone in Bonerama). Unlike a traditional brass band, Bonerama focuses on the Bone players and the band plays classic New Orleans tunes as well as originals and some tremendous covers of artists like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. There is no other band like Bonerama. This will be a tremendous double bill.

Rebirth Brass Band - Saturday February 11, 7 and 11 pm - Hiro Ball Room

Probably the kings of the New Orleans brass bands right now. Co-founded by Kermit Ruffins, Rebirth honors the traditions of the great New Orleans Brass Bands while bringing funk and soul to the mix. They are the brass band all others are measured against.

Soul Rebels Brass Band - Brooklyn Bowl - Friday February 3rd, 8pm

The young upstarts, Soul Rebels take the brass band tradition and add funk, soul, hip hop and attitude for a fresh and unique spin. Basically the house band at Le Bon Temps Roule in New Orleans, Soul Rebels deliver a fierce and energetic show.

Tab Benoit - Friday, February 10 - Hiro Ballroom

Tab is a great Blues guitar player and singer from Baton Rouge. He plays Delta Blues with a dose of Swamp Rock and Cajun attitude. This is Blues from the Bayou and all guitar fans and Blues fans should not miss it.

These shows are the perfect cure for the winter blues. Make sure you get your behind off the couch, out of the house and to one of these show. Let the good times roll.

  2. Starting with The Bowery Ballroom and culminating in The New Museum, The Bowery, and the LES as a whole, has seen a remarkable transformation. Gone are the homeless men huddled around open fires in trash cans trying to keep warm. Now you have brand new condos as well as a booming bar and restaurant scene.

  30. Keto Total BHB Solid exercise might be pleasurable, however it isn't constantly perceived thusly. Unfortunate quirks have been instilled to put forth every healthy development appear to be loaded with attempt and work. Thus we can't generally pass judgment on the worth of any recently applied type of preparing exclusively by the trial of it's pleasurability. We are a result of what our folks and educators made us; they unfortunately frequently ruin the work. Luckily, if an activity is in concordance with our intrinsic nature and necessities, we before long will appreciate it. The present stationary way of life implies that side interests and sports are fundamental enhancements to our every day lives. Regardless of whether they be Gardening, cycling, carpentry, tennis, golf, horse riding, swimming, sports, or street running. Pick the sort of movement you appreciate in light of the fact that as it's been said "Whatever brightens your day." Cycling is my fundamental exercise however I just cycle to get starting with one spot then onto the next and as I live around 5 kilometers from the closest town I bicycle 10k consistently. Cycling unquestionably would not be my picked sport. Sports is. The fact of the matter is that you pick something you appreciate doing. Start from where you are the extent that wellness goes. I might be viewed as fit contrasted with a great many people my age yet when I start my running effort I test my wellness to begin with by going around a grass enclosure a few times. I start with five laps around the enclosure just to test my condition of wellness.https://www.healthpubmed.com/keto-total-bhb/
