Mardi Gras Party

It’s Mardi Gras season down in New Orleans and we’re havin’ a party–Louisiana-style!

The event is sponsored by the French Club, Pi Delta Phi, Department of Modern Languages, and C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience.

Featuring Cajun & Zydeco music, dancing and Louisiana cuisine, the event kicked off with a two-step lesson and continued with live music by the Howlin’ Mudbugs. The Howlin’ Mudbugs are an acoustic folk and roots-rock group with New Orleans Cajun, Zydeco and Blues influences. The group includes Kraig Greff on accordion and vocals and Chris Huntington on guitar and vocals. Each road-seasoned member hosts an impressive and diverse musical and performance resume. Greff has toured with Barry White, Della Reese, Joe Williams and Diana Ross, and is a 2008 Emmy award recipient. Huntington is a Grammy nominated artist who has recorded and toured with the Temptations and Leroy Thomas.
