Make This Fat Tuesday a Celebration for the Books with the Indigo Moon Brass Band

Mardi Gras, like Christmas, is a whole season - not just one day. That being said, Fat Tuesday is the biggest day of celebration. The F.M. Kirby Center is pleased to announce a special Fat Tuesday Celebration of New Orleans inspired music featuring Indigo Moon Brass Band, with special guests The Mule Team, as part of the ‘Live from the Chandelier Lobby’ concert series.

Indigo Moon Brass Band is a Jazz/Funk ensemble from Northeastern Pennsylvania rooted in traditional New Orleans second-line music. They feature horn players Nick Driscoll (Sax), Dan Coil (trumpet), Gary Rixner (trombone) and George Levandowski (sousaphone), with A.J. Jump (drums) and Rick Statsmen (percussion) supplying the rhythm.

The Mule Team from Scranton, PA are an Americana group pulling from traditional country, folk, rock, and R&B, featuring three-part harmony and songwriting from Chris Kearney (guitar), Roy Williams (piano, guitar, pedal steel) and J.P. Biondo (guitar), with Ian O’Hara (bass) and A.J. Jump (drums) rounding out the rhythm section.

F.M. Kirby Center’s Fat Tuesday Celebration will begin at 7 PM on Tuesday, February 25th. The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts is a historic Art Deco-Moderne style movie theater located at Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Don’t miss out an ode to New Orleans’ Fat Tuesday!
