If you can't make it to New Orleans for the bacchanalian revelry known as Mardi Gras, don't miss Uptown Kingston's take on the jubilee. On February 24, the Soul Brass Band, a high-energy nine-piece ensemble straight from NOLA, will bring a taste of Bourbon Street to BSP Kingston. The evening kicks of with a warm-up party led by Rick from WKZE at 8pm, followed by a second-line parade down Wall Street, and the band takes the stage at 9pm. More than standard jazz and swing, this band combines traditional brass with classical soul to produce a sound steeped in the tradition of New Orleans parade music. Tap takeover by Catskill Brewery. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
