Greetings all.

Hey everybody!

It’s Mardi Gras time again, and I am keeping up with the annual tradition by posting another one of my favorite Funky16Corners mixes, ‘Boogaloo Mardi Gras’ (first posted in 2012) in which I have compiled some of the finest New Orleans soul and funk in my crates.

It has everything you need (except for liquor and potato chips) to laissez les bon temps roulez, so get you an um-ba-rella in your hand (thanks Alvin!) , roll out into the street and get your second line on.

I hope you dig it, and I’ll see you all on Wednesday.

Keep the Faith

    This is such a fine mix Larry! I’ve enjoyed it every year (throughout the year) since you first uploaded it, and have found it a very useful guide in my burgeoning collection of New Orleans 45s.
    As ever – thanks for all the great knowledge you’re forever dropping on us! Keep on keepin’ on!
