22nd Annual Cajun & Zydeco Mardi Gras Ball

60 Rhodes Pl, Cranston, RI   (view map)

You don’t really need to be in New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. As partyers around the world realize, the Crescent City’s annual bash is merely a state of mind — it can happen anywhere. The local celebrations, especially the Cajun & Zydeco Mardi Gras Ball, always put a big pile of music in our collective lap, so it’s easy to catch the spirit. This time ’round — the 22nd time ’round! — the exclamation comes barreling along in the form of C.J. Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band, Leroy Thomas & the Zydeco Roadrunners, the Hot Tamale Brass Band, and headliners Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys. Of course, when the Playboys take the stage at Rhodes-On-the-Pawtuxet, 60 Rhodes Pl, Cranston, the swoop of their zydecajun storm will provide plenty of old-fashioned thrust. And come hungry: there will be Cajun and Creole-inspired delicacies from Russell Morin Caterers. The revelry runs from 6 pm to midnight | $30 advance, $40 door | 401.783.3926 | mardigrasri.com

with Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys + C.J. Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band + Leroy Thomas & the Zydeco Roadrunners + the Hot Tamale Brass Band, plus Cajun and Creole cuisine by Russell Morin Caterers
