Easter Thursday Mardi Gras Special w/ J Felix & Brass Funkeys
This time of year, for
us Anglo-Saxon folk is cold, its wet, its dark and everyone looks miserable.
And yet on the opposite side of the globe in New Orleans and South America, its
100% party time - semi-naked people, wasted on Caipirinhas and frozen
Daiquiris, dancing in the street to feel-good Latin and Jazz beats for days on
While they make Mardi Gras the biggest party on the calendar, we just make (often failed) pancakes with a bit of lemon juice and sugar to soften the blow. Just because the quirks of living on a sphere that rotates on an axis several degrees off vertical gives them better weather at this time of year, why should they have all the fun? Right?
So, here's the deal - we can't bring the sunshine.... but we've sorted everything else! That’s why this Easter, we’re bring the sounds and sights of a Mardi Gras to East London with the helping hands of Live Brass Band - Brass Funkeys and a DJ set from J Felix as well as Just Juice, Our Party and Wild Life residents.
This is the HOTTEST place to be this Easter Thursday and we can’t wait to party with you.

The Brass Funkeys are
based on a New Orleans style marching band. Boasting a setup of Sousaphone,
Trombones, Trumpets, Saxophone and Percussion. They draw from the traditions of New Orleans with
skilled musicianship, rolling from spirited second line revelry to soulful jazz
funeral marches and brass driven funk.
