Mardi Gras has come and gone, but the Maritime Republic of Eastport has a fine reputation for doing things their own way which in the past has included a sock burning ceremony and celebrating Mardi Gras whenever they get the notion. This week they are throwing a hellatious party called The Ambassador’s (Other) Ball which will happen at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 6.
Little Red & The Renegades with Alan & Chris of The Grandsons will be playing the event and special guest ‘Texas Fred’ Carter, the Zydeco Cowboy, of WPFW-FM (89.3) will be there as well. The $25 admission includes a buffet serving Cajun and other food specialties, plus draft beer, soft drinks-door prizes, costume & dance judging.
( Mardi Gras or Key West attire encouraged)
Best of all - the proceeds will benefit the Annapolis Musicians Funding Musicians & the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic.
