It's Mardis Gras time! Where y'at?

Mardis Gras Dinosaur!

I know where you want to be - with Tributosaurus! This Black History Month, we bring a taste of the Crescent City (that's N'Awlins to you) to Martyr's as we become the kings of New Orleans funk : The Neville Brothers and The Meters!

Things will be a little different this month ; the late show will be on FAT TUESDAY (Feb 5) at 9pm, and there will only be an early show on Wednesday, so make your plans and come ready to dance!

There will be beads! There will be funk! There will be sweat! There will be fun!

What's more, Papa Ray Quinn at Martyr's is cookin' up something special - there will be Jambalaya, Etoufee, and other favorites on the menu, so come early and stuff your belly so you have the strength to dance all night! That's right, people - we dare you NOT to dance to this music - can't be done!

Tributosaurus becomes The Neville Brothers/The Meters
Fat Tuesday, February 5th - 9:00pm
Wednesday, February 6th - 7:30pm (no late show!)
Martyrs, 3855 n Lincoln

Laissez les bon Temps Roulez!


The class we did a couple months back on the Allman Brothers was such a success, that we thought we’d break out the yardsticks once again for a look at what makes the New Orleans funk and soul sound so interesting - with a special emphasis on The Neville Brothers and the Meters, of course!

We’ll spend some time breaking down some of the tunes, and we’ll go over some of the influences present in this music, as well as some of the history. We’ll also get into some of the rhythms and syncopations that are the trademark of this music. We’ll give you some handy tips and tricks for all the instruments that’ll help you incorporate a little N’Awlins flavor into your own musical cookbook as well.

Derwin "Big D" Perkins (The Monster Gentlemen, Neville Brothers, Aretha Franklin) will be joining us to add a little extra Cajun spice too! But this is not geared solely towards musicians - it is designed to give any music aficionado a deeper understanding of what’s going on behind the New Orleans sound, enabling a more fulfilling listening experience. We also receive a lot of requests from our fans who have kids to do events that are kid-friendly, and this one definitely is! So bring the young ’uns out!

Should be fun, and hey, you just might learn something!

Master Class Ticket Pricing :

Kids (12 and under) - $10
Adults Pre-Sale - $15
Adults Walk-up - $20

Tickets are available at

Class starts at 6:30pm and ends at 8pm
Thursday, February 7th
at Martyrs - don't miss it!
