Keystone is excited to welcome Bourbon Street Hurricanes to this year’s Fat Tuesday celebration! Bourbon Street Hurricanes is an authentic, mobile, second line marching band, comprised of traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras favorites and gospel and blues and funky renditions of your favorite selections from the Crescent City. This group was invented to perform as an actual second line wedding March and that is what you will hear parading through Keystone on Mardi Gras!
