The Mardi Gras Mambofest show by Rhythmtown–Jive is a celebration of many styles of New Orleans music: from the rhythm & blues of Huey "Piano" Smith & the Clowns, through the lively 30's jazz of Louis Armstrong to the funk of the Meters.
This combo has a long relationship with New Orleans music, having recorded many original compositions in that vein (one co-written with Zigaboo Modeliste of the Meters) and having backed Earl King and Lee Allen.
Various members of the group have also worked with Dr. John, Ernie–K–Doe, Queen Ida, Gary “U. S.” Bonds, Johnny Adams, Herb Hardesty, Zigaboo Modeliste, and Leo Nocentelli.
