Help us continue the countdown to Niagara’s Summer Mardi Gras with this live streamed presentation co-hosted by Ronnie Liittlejohn, jazz/funk/soul musician and host of Gumbo Kitchen on JazzFM.91, along with our New Orleans correspondent, Christopher Butcher (of the Heavyweights Brass Band) and our very special guest, New Orleans’ locally famous Percy L. Ellis. We will be streaming live from Niagara and New Orleans to teach you all the second line dance moves you’ll need to get ready for Niagara’s Summer MARDI GRAS on July 18.
The streets of New Orleans are filled with so many colourful characters, and Perry L. Ellis is no exception! He can often be found accompanying Delfeayo Marsalis and his Uptown Jazz Orchestra on festival dates to bring the Crescent City vibes by dancing with the band. This fun interactive workshop will have you on your feet and will get you ready to dance up and down your driveway (in full Mardi Gras regalia) on July 18th!
