The Green Parrot “Who Dat” Party with John “Papa” Gros !
The Green Parrot has become legendary in particular for its solid reputation as THE Key West home of great live music while at the same time has long been favorably compared to many of the most famous live music venues of New Orleans. Compared not just for its live music but also for its air of celebration and as a far-flung bastion of New Orleans “Who Dat” culture and festivity and its joyful embrace of “Laissez les bon temps rouler” or “Let The Good Times Roll”.
Join us here with shows at 10 p.m and midnight on Tuesday, October 25th for one very special night of New Orleans culture as John “Papa” Gros, formerly of Papa Grows Funk, leads the crowd in a chant of “Who Dat” and turns our Key West intersection of Southard and Whitehead into the intersection of NOLA Funk and R & B!
Listed among New Orleans’ most renowned performers, John “Papa” Gros is steeped in the New Orleans music tradition, a bedrock New Orleans artist, keyboardist, singer and songwriter who draws on funk, rhythm & blues and Americana songcraft and a man who knows his way around the Mardi Gras music repertoire as well as anyone.
The Parrot as always is chock full of rich culture and vibrant costumes, so while costumes of any color combination are a part of any festive Mardi Gras party, purple, green and gold are the traditional Mardi Gras colors so we invite you to dress up accordingly as you come and help us stir the Gumbo at our New Orleans’ “Who Dat” Party!
