A Lundi Gras Celebration: Boogie T. Bringing DJ & Live Band Set to the Joy Tonight

Boogie T. and his band the Boogie T.Rio are playing the Joy Theatre tonight in a Lundi Gras celebration. Get tickets here.

What better way to celebrate Mardi Gras than with some NOLA family? For their Lundi Gras celebration, the Joy Theatre is welcoming local dance music star Boogie T and the Boogie T.Rio band. 

It’s a Mardi Gras takeover hosted by Boogie T.’s record label – Drama Club Recordings. The evening will feature both a DJ set from our swamp bass master and a live band performance with the T.Rio.

Last August the band released their latest EP Three the People which expanded the band’s signature funk and rock fusion and even featured a few heavier bass breakdowns.

In addition to the EP, the T.Rio constructed a visual component to the project. On the track “Far,” the trio invites you into their world with a trippy, animated music video that brings viewers straight into their swamp-y stomping grounds. Created by illustrator, animator, and art director for Boogie, KOOZ, “Far’s” visual companion is a cartoon whose eye-popping colors does ample justice to the vibrancy of the funk anthem.

Drama Club Recordings launched on 4/20 of 2018. The label has released tracks from the Boogie T.Rio as well as GRiZ, Rusko, Dirt Monkey, Jantsen, Gentleman’s Club, HE$H x Bommer, and more. In its first year alone, the label released over 50 tracks.

Joining the T.Rio for their New Orleans performance is SubDocta, sfam and Madhatter.

As Boogie T. has grown to play epic venues like Red Rocks and Lost Lands Festival – it may be a while before we get another hometown show. Make sure not to miss this awesome hometown performance and celebrate Lundi Gras with some big, ol’ swampy bass. 

Boogie T. headlines the Joy Theatre tonight!

The show starts at 10 PM. Get tickets quick!
