A delicious menu of Cajun and Creole cuisine, the joyous sound of Dixieland jazz and Louisiana Zydeco filling the air, and even the opportunity to consult with a “high priestess of voodoo” – party goers will have a chance to feast on all these ingredients and more on June 8th, when Ridgefield’s historic Lounsbury House magically transports its guests down to The Big Easy.
Following an unforgettable “Carnevale Di Venezia” hosted at The Briarcliff Manor in Westchester County, New York in February, this time Therèsa Fernand invites those eager for a multi-sensory experience to bring their “passports” for a journey to the festive New Orleans of the 1920s.
For a party to qualify as “extraordinary,” great food and great entertainment are a must, of course – and like a festive Mardi Gras parade, “A Night in New Orleans” promises not to disappoint. In addition to Creole delicacies, drawing on European influences, there will be tasty Cajun dishes like oyster “po-boy” sandwiches and even the city’s legendary beignets (New Orleans style “fritters”) for dessert.
Guests can prepare to dance to Hot Jazz Jumpers, featuring Broadway singer Betina Hershey, acclaimed banjoist/guitarist Nick Russo (Good Morning America), esteemed vocalist Miles Griffith (Max Roach, Reggie Workman, Paul Simon), legendary washboard player Newman Taylor Baker & guest clarinet player. The group will perform 20s jazz, music of New Orleans evoking the city’s ambassador of music, the incomparable Louis Armstrong – followed by Cajun tunes that will have everyone out of their seats, “cutting the rug.”
