Carnival Ball

Saturday, February 22, 2020
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Mole Hill Theatre
789 Gilsum Mine Rd
Alstead, NH

 

Mole Hill Theatre’s 8th Mostly-Annual Carnival Ball will be Saturday Feb 22… 7pm potluck, 8pm live music & dancing featuring BAYOU X, with special guests Galera Da Samba. Admission is $15 at the door, $30 family ticket. There will be several parades, a costume contest, plenty of beads, a celebrity King and Queen of the Mardi Gras. Over the past 5 years, this event has grown to be the most dynamic Mardi Gras celebration in the southern VT/NH region.

The Mole Hill Theatre is located at 789 Gilsum Mine Road in East Alstead, 2 miles north of the village of Gilsum.

Fronted by New Orleans native Pete Simoneaux on fiddle and spouse Linda Simoneaux on accordions, Bayou X melds traditional Cajun & Creole dance music of southwest Louisiana with New Orleans R&B, and original and folkloric tunes derived from throughout the Caribbean basin and the larger global Creole musical diaspora. Filling out the band for this event will Luke Houk on electric bass, Bob Everingham on electric guitar, Ben Carr on drums, and Bruce Elliot on saxophone.

Galera Da Samba, the VT Jazz Center Samba Ensemble, performs classic samba rhythms from Rio de Janeiro, Bahia Salvador, and other regions of Brazil. Led by Julian Gerstin and Ron Kelley, this group can be counted on to raise the roof. The group will perform in parade, inside the Mole Hill, and will likely join forces with Bayou X for a couple of numbers, combining the Carnival traditions of Brazil with those of New Orleans and Southwest Louisiana.

Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday”, is an ancient celebration with pagan roots, most famously celebrated in New Orleans, but also throughout Europe, South America and the Caribbean as Carnival, Carnivale, Shrove Tuesday, etc.
