Jazz Bar Hosts 'Half Way to Mardi Gras' Tonight

LACONIA —  The Jazz Bar will present a 'Half Way to Mardi Gras' program tonight at 7 p.m. Landaya African Drums and Dr. Sax's Funeral Band will share the bill

Landaya African Drums plays music that was once heard in New Orleans' famous Congo Square, a gathering place in the Treme neighborhood where slaves would gather to play, sing and dance. Keeping the tradition alive, Landaya performs on the djembe, sangban, dununba, and kenkeni drums, as well as the tambin (known as the Fula flute), kamalen'goni (10-string African harp), the krin (log drum).

Dr. Sax's Funeral Band is a brass band that performs for memorial services and burials throughout the Northeast. In keeping with the New Orleans style, this marching-ready outfit incorporates trumpets, saxophones, and tuba to provide mournful dirges and high-spirited celebration music.

There is a $10 cover charge. Full bar and menu are available.

The Jazz Bar is located at the Tower Hill Entertainment Complex at 290 Lakeside Ave at Weirs Beach.
