Mardi Gras musical celebrations

Friends of the Ginseng Roots Band,

It's that time of year -- shiny beads, food, booze, and women baring their breasts. (Well, it's Mardi Gras and we can say that and hope for that but count on it? Probably not.)

You have 2 opportunities to do your Mardi Gras partying with the band. This year we're in Bethlehem, PA!

Friday, February 17
The Bookstore Speakeasy

Ginseng Roots Band
9pm - 1 am
336 Adams Street
Bethlehem, PA 18015-1661

Band members will include: Uke Jackson on reso ukulele, vocals and the Grand Contraption; JJ Peppers on saxophones; Tuba Pete on tuba (how did that happen?) and trombone; Chris the Pool Manager on melodica and washboard.

For those of you who are traditionalists, we will be playing 4 sets of classic Dixieland on Fat Tuesday. This is our first time at the Hotel B and we're excited to establish ourselves with this venue. If you're free on Fat Tuesday and in the region, come on out and partayyyy!
