St. Edward's University - Ragsdale Center
Celebrate Mardi Gras at this year's Mardi Gras Mambeaux! Join your fellow Austin Tigers and Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler with an evening of food & fun & raising funds for our local LSU students scholarships!
We'll be celebrating Mardi Gras while jamming to the glorious tunes of The Numbers, and serving up gumbo & king cakes courtesy of Stuffed Cajun Meat Market! Bring your best beads, your sassiest shoes and your prettiest mask! Cash bar (and by that - we mean cash; there is an ATM somewhere nearby ... but best to bring the greenbacks!) All alumni, friends, fans & family of LSU are welcome to attend!
Event will be held on the Ragsdale Center on the campus of St. Edward's University - easiest way to access is to take Ben White, and then head north on Congress. Turn right at Woodward St, first left on Andre, right on Moody.)
Tickets are $25 and all are welcome to attend! (Tickets for LSU Austin members are $20; membership is open to all who bleed purple & gold -- join today! Can't remember if your membership status is current? Check here!
(Members - choose the 2nd option in the dropdown.)
Last year, we sold out - so buy your tickets now!
This year's Mambeaux will once again feature The Numbers playing traditional New Orleans jazz! The band is led by its founder, Don Lavigne, who grew up in New Orleans. The band was originally formed by members of the Austin Community College Math Department. Players have come and gone over the years and the band has evolved beyond its humble beginnings.
Some members still have connections to ACC as faculty or playing with the ACC jazz bands. The Numbers have performed at the North Door, Kenny Dorham’s Backyard, Waterloo Ice House and private parties, among other venues. They are proud to be part of the Honk!TX community of street bands. For Mardi Gras season they will be appearing at various venues in the Austin area.
