Every year, a group of New York music lovers host the “Two Boots Mardi Gras Benefit Ball.” The event features  a series of in-demand musicians who always leave the crowd with a night they will never forget. In past years, the ball has hosted artists such as the Middle Church Choir. This year’s 600 person party will be just as fantastic and entertaining, with the entire event following an authentic New Orleans theme. The event will feature beloved performers such as PitchBlak, EMEFE, DJ Roxy Cottontail and The Ambitious Orchestra. This year’s King and Queen, Questlove and Cyndi Lauper are also sure to entertain and make the night even more of a party.

The proceeds from the fourth annual Two Boots Mardi Gras Benefit Ball support the Lower Eastside Girls Club, which works to combat violence against adolescent females. The event will be held with the aim to incorporate female friendly ideals into the Mardi Gras celebrations and empower women. All proceeds will be donated to the Girls Club.
