He can easily glide from ‘Bon Ton Roulet’ to ‘Zydeco Beach Party’ to blues, country, conjunto, and back again.”

Come join your friends from The Maritime Republic of Eastport in our annual celebration of the Anniversary of our Micronation’s secession from Annapolis (and especially the tyranny of Ward One). In the tradition of the Mardi Gras parade (or Kinky Key West on any day), don your gladdest rags (you will be judged!) for our own MRE dance party.

We'll have the fabulous Little Red & The Renegades to entertain us with their two-stepping, rump-shaking, “can’t sit still” live music. They’ve been playing this event to capacity crowds that included many out-of-towners mixed in with us East Port-O-Reekins.

LITTLE RED & THE RENEGADES

(WAMMY Award Winners)

Get ready for the rump-shakingest, floor-struttingest party north of N'awlins! This is the signature event of our social season.

Those who know the MRE appreciate that we like dancing to our own drummer. So our own distinctive Mardi Gras-themed party comes after all the others. We like saving the BEST for LAST,  y'all. It's the signature event of our social season!

Put on your most festive costumes and dance the night away to the squeezebox swamp rock and  Zydeco sound of the renowned Little Red & the Renegades. Tickets are $25. Cheap, when you consider that entitles you to fantastic Crescent City food as well as "normal" chow created by local restaurants and chefs.

But that's not all! The price of admission also includes a souvenir cup and beads; draft beer and soda galore. Also in store: 50-50 raffle; Silent Auction; door prizes; and prizes awarded for Best Dancers and also Best Costumes.

Want to put on a Happy Face?  Our Face Painter can handle that for you, too.

Tickets will be available at the door or (your best bet to jump the line) in advance! They may be purchased at the following fine retail establishments:

  • Ahh, Coffee! / 1015 Bay Ridge Avenue / Eastport Shopping Center
  • Eastport Shell Station / 335 Sixth Street / Eastport

All proceeds benefit
Annapolis Drum & Bugle Corps

 

So put your own Krewe together and c'mon down, y'heah?

This event is for EDC Members & Guests.
