Lanta Gras is a now a Mardi Gras celebration in our city. They do it as a fundraiser for schools and kids to learn and practice music. We’ll be performing among other great like-minded bands in Atlanta. It’ll be a parade, a standstill.. and who knows.. maybe even a jam! Come one come all! Huge block party at the end, anything Orpheus you buy goes straight into the bucket of cash to help kids, Pullman and the Kirkyard Pub donate 15% of the money they make Saturday to the cause. Oh, pack Bumper to Bumper and Ya move ya lose.. with 4+ bands at the event I bet we’ll jam.
