Joe Bithell's Silicon Gulch jazz Band has been playing every Tuesday at 
the Prince of Wales Pub in San Mateo, CA for many, many years and by 
default has a Mardi Gras party each year. It is not an over-the-top 
event but more than a few guest musicians show up and jam (me 
included.) http://www.keller.com/bass/siliconcalendar.html for the 
details. The song list runs a bit towards the traditional Mardi Gras 
parade songs but mostly Joe calls from his standard song list. The 
audience has been known to be worked into a moderate frenzy but usually 
not to any great excess (darn!)
