This show by Rhythmtown–Jive is a celebration of Dr. John and the many styles of New Orleans music. This group has a long relationship with New Orleans music, having recorded many original compositions in that vein (one co-written with Zigaboo Modeliste of the Meters) and having backed Earl King and Lee Allen. Various members of the group have also worked with Dr. John, Ernie–K–Doe, Queen Ida, Gary "U.S." Bonds, Johnny Adams, Herb Hardesty, Zigaboo Modeliste and Leo Nocentelli. The annual Mardi Gras Mambofest shows on or around Fat Tuesday have drawn rave reviews and capacity crowds anticipating a wild and festive occasion with bead-tossing, outrageous costumes, and even second line parading of
the Rhythmtown–Jive Marching Brass. This show has appeared multiple times at BGP's famed "New Orleans By The Bay."
