Mardi Gras at Bayou

Zydeco/Cajun
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Music is at the heart of many Mardi Gras celebrations, and Bayou is showing off different sides of the New Orleans's sound. Beginning at noon, it's a day-long affair with jazz and funk from the Capitol Hillbillies, Yamomanem, the Dixie Power Trio and the Texas Chainsaw Horns. Want to really get in the spirit? Meet the Yamomanem horn section at the Dupont Circle fountain at 4 p.m. and parade down to the Foggy Bottom restaurant.
