Celebrate Mardi Gras With Delfeayo Marsalis & the Uptown Jazz Orchestra

Hey San Diego jazz enthusiasts and culture seekers! Get ready to be swept away by the vibrant soul of New Orleans without leaving the comfort of our sunny city by no other than the legendary Delfeayo Marsalis & the Uptown Jazz Orchestra!

Delfeayo Marsalis & the Uptown Jazz Orchestra

Marsalis, a key figure from the renowned “First Family of Jazz” and a NEA Jazz Master no less, is hitting our shores with his electrifying Uptown Jazz Orchestra. Imagine the pulse of New Orleans jazz, the kind that fills the air during Mardi Gras, right here in San Diego!

Delfeayo isn’t just any musician; he’s a master trombonist, a brilliant composer, and has shared the stage with icons like Ray Charles, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones. Now, he’s bringing the essence of NOLA’s jazz scene to us with his band.

They’re known for their dynamic mix of original pieces and jazz classics, embodying the spirit of jazz through riff playing and the magic of spontaneous arrangements. This is your chance to experience a performance where every note tells a story, echoing the rich narratives, sounds, and rhythms of New Orleans.

See you there!

This special night of music is set in the elegant Price Center East Ballroom at UC San Diego. Picture this: the energy of a Mardi Gras parade, the intimacy of a jazz club, and the soul of a city known for its musical heritage, all wrapped up in one unforgettable performance.

Plus, you’ll get to hear tunes from their latest album, “Uptown on Mardi Gras Day,” bringing the party vibes of NOLA’s biggest celebration right to you.

Tickets are going for $40—a small price for a journey to the heart of American jazz. Make sure to grab yours and learn more about this can’t-miss event by visiting here.

See you there, San Diego!
