Backyard Concert Series: Revolutionary Snake Ensemble
Tickets $25 General Admission
Celebrate the final weeks of this memorable summer at a blow-out party featuring a rare Outer Cape performance by Ken Field’s Revolutionary Snake Ensemble. Called “one of the most successful combinations of booty-shaking & brain-stimulating music” by Splendid Magazine, the group is a funky, brass heavy, N’Awlins street beat band that has been listed as Nightlife Pick of the Week in The New Yorker.
Philly’s WKDU noted that RSE “touches all the right cornerstones of jazz, but also funks my socks off!” And noted jazz writer and historian Ted Gioia asks on jazz.com: “Doctor, is there an antidote? I am having visions of Mardi Gras parties out of control. They call it a brass band, but there must be some voodoo in this music!”
Don’t miss this great end-of-summer event on the lawn of Preservation Hall (or indoors in case of rain), and don’t forget to wear your beads! You won’t regret it!!
