Delta Brass Express Featured at Mardi Gras Costume Ball in May


Delta Brass Express will perform at the Hot Springs Jazz Society’s Annual Mardi Gras Costume Ball and Competition at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 21 at the Hot Springs Hotel & Spa, 305 Malvern Ave.

“Having fun is what the Hot Springs Jazz Society loves to do; having fun and presenting great jazz music,” a press release said. Funds raised will support free jazz concerts and scholarships for Arkansas music students.

Delta Brass Express “will be playing all night behind the biggest dance floor in Hot Springs. Delta Brass Express presents the best rock ‘n’ roll of the 60s, 70s and 80s, perfect for a dance party. But it’s not the only intended pleasure,” the statement said.

Event sponsor Lara’s Jewelry & Design is raffling off a specially created Mardi Gras gemstone pendant valued at $1,650 for Mardi Gras. The highlight of the evening is an elaborate costume contest with cash prizes totaling $1,000. A “spectacular silent auction” is also planned for weekend getaways, golf outings, unique fishing trips as well as envelopes filled with certificates from favorite restaurants, “every envelope is worth more than the donation”, says the press release.

The event features HRH, Beth Gipe, Queen Jazz IX and HRH, Richard Gipe, King Jazz IX with their Duchess and Duke, Sonja and Ike Eisenhauer. A Cajun buffet is included with admission and drink specials will be available.

The cost is $70 per person, including the Cajun buffet. Reserved 10-person dance floor tables are also available for $700. Visit for more information or tickets, or call 501-627-2425.
