Rhythm and Roots Festival Wrote;

Like jalapenos, cayennes, and habaneros, the “Hot Tamales” have been spicing up the Rhythm and Roots Festival for several years now by playing and marching through the crowd as soon as each Main Stage show ends. Before long, this infectious New Orleans style band has picked up a veritable parade of merrymakers who march along with them” complete with Mardi Gras masks, beads, festive hats, costumes and streamers that sparkle and wave in the wind. The “Hot Tamales” also lead our daily Kids Mardi Gras Parade, for which dozens of kids have hand-made their own masks and percussion instruments. It just wouldn’t be Rhythm and Roots without these wonderful musicians! As Emeril would say, they “kick it up a notch” !

Dear Mickey,
Thank you so much for all your efforts and help with the First night 25th Birthday Celebration in Copley Square. Everyone had a fabulous time and our board of directors along with the visiting First Night cities called it a great success. Much of the praise belongs to you and the Hot Tamale Brass Band. You guys were the hit of the party-kept everybody dancing and the festivities hopping! Once again THANK YOU from all of us at First Night.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
