BarnArts 9th Annual Masquerade Jazz and Funk Winter Music Carnival

A Zoom event

Saturday, March 6 at 6 p.m.—BARNARD—BarnArts is hosting its 9th annual Masquerade Jazz and Funk Winter Music Carnival. From 6-9 p.m. DJ Sean will be spinning the tunes, keeping with the New Orleans-style fun and funk you love. Tickets are available on a $5-20 sliding-scale.

Enjoy Jazz hours at 6 p.m. featuring new work by Sultans of Saul, and new performance video from Artistrio. Recordings of Michael Zsoldos and Jason Ennis from 2019 and WUHS JazzFunk Ensemble from 2017. Slideshow of photos from previous years, plus MASK prancing — they want to see your 2021 masks.

Then from 7-9 p.m. it’s the funk dance party. Get your boogie on in your living room while listening to DJ Sean’s spins and watching and interacting with other Zoom-ers.  Recordings from previous years will be mixed in, including the Wanda Houston Band and WUHS Jazz Funk Band, plus new video work by some of our recent headliners, including Kotoko Brass.

There will also be mask making and a mask contest. Dress up! Decorate your dance space with festive lights! Get creative and make a new mask for yourself at home this year.  Come up with your own materials and fabulous mask, or grab one of our free mask kits to do at home, available at the Barnard General Store (starting 2/26).  Prance your mask on Zoom, vote for your favorites in the Zoom chat.

Finally, enjoy New Orleans-inspired take-out. Support area restaurants and bars as they join us with take-out specials to match our New Orleans party.  Pick up ahead of time and enjoy during our Jazz Hour! Visit bit.ly/3sHYZ1f for more info and to register.
