Mt. CB Summer Concert Series: Mardi Gras Funk
August 14, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
From the funk-laced beats and bass-heavy sousaphone blasts that kick off their grammy nominated album “Spyboy” to the gritty warmth of singer J’Wan Boudreaux’s voice, New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit Cha Wa radiates the fiery energy of the best features of the city’s street culture.
Although “cha wa” means “we’re comin’ for ya” in Indian vernacular, Boudreaux says the album “Spyboy” is “Cha Wa all around” for a different reason. Cha Wa ignites an entire new generation with contemporary anthems set ablaze by its high-flying ensemble. Says Boudreaux, “Everyone put their minds together to make this music. Everyone had input on at least one song. And the whole band has a different type of connection these days. Everybody’s bonded now. Everybody’s just having fun”.
Sponsored by the Mt. Crested Butte Town Center Community Association, the Live! From Mt. CB Summer Concert Series returns for the summer of 2019 with an exciting lineup of amazing musicians. Join the fun key Wednesday evenings between late June and mid-August for an evening of free music at the base of Mt. Crested Butte.
All shows will take place at the Red Lady Stage in Mt. Crested Butte from 5:30 – 7:30 pm
