**Celebrating the music of New Orleans for Mardi Gras week**

It’s Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras day.

So accordingly, here’s my favorite Mardi Gras day song, ‘All On A Mardi Gras Day’ by The Wild Magnolias. Where else could a song or a band like this even be possible but New Orleans?

Enjoy. And happy Mardi Gras, 2019, everyone.

And, a Lagniappe!¹ Probably the most famous Mardi Gras song of them all, by “Fess”, Professor Longhair (although to this day I’m still not certain if it’s properly called ‘Go To The Mardi Gras’ or ‘Mardi Gras in New Orleans.’ I think the answer is either or both).


¹A New Orleans term basically meaning a “little something extra.” Think of your favorite shucker giving you a 13th oyster when you order a dozen.
