Looks like Mardi Gras is set to be extra countrified next year.
It's already been announced that Luke Bryan will be performing at the Endymion Extravaganza during February's Mardi Gras, but now comes word that Dierks Bentley will also be heading to New Orleans to perform.
Dierks will headline the 2015 Orpheuscapade, the Krewe of Orpheus’ huge black-tie-only event on February 16.
According to the Orpheuscapade website, "This black tie event begins with live music and dancing until the magic moment when the gigantic floats arrive. As the entire parade rolls through the Convention Center, guests are showered with beads, doubloons, and other throws that fly fast and furious from the magnificent floats. Once the floats are inside, the music resumes, and dancing and merriment reign."
Sounds like fun.
Also performing at the Orpheuscapade will be Casey James, No Limits, and Wes Raymond and The Soul Factory.
