Chelle! & Friends (2 shows)
This children’s program repeats at 12:15pm.
Led by New Orleans-native Michelle Jacques, a soul-steeped vocalist with a big, bold voice, Chelle! & Friends bring to the Gardens a family-friendly taste of the Crescent City, the cradle of so much essential American music. Featuring some of the region’s most exciting musicians, including blues-steeped guitarist Eric Swinderman, jazz bassist Sam Bevan, and vocalist Bryan Dyer, Chelle! & Friends deliver music that’s steeped in the cadences of gospel and animated by the earthy grooves of R&B and the Caribbean. Join the party, move your feet, sing along, and join a Mardi Gras parade!
