Steve Creech Mardi Gras All-Star Quintet Saturday Night at Fountain 

[Fountain, NC] The Steve Creech Mardi Gras All-Star Quintet plays parade and Dixieland jazz at Fountain General Store Saturday night.

Creech, the Greenville guitarist and bandleader, has assembled an outstanding band of locally based musicians for this show, which will feature a variety of Mardi Gras, New Orleans and Dixieland-style jazz.

Joining Creech in the band are Les Sutorius on trumpet, Tommy Smith on trombone, Eric Jerningan on bass and tuba, and Bobby Harrison on drums. 

Mardi Gras this year is on February 21. Saturday’s parade schedule in New Orleans includes two of the biggest of the season: Endymion and Isis. “No parades in Fountain,” said Alex Albright, Fountain General Store proprietor and former New Orleans resident, “but we’ll have the spirit of Mardi Gras out here, a lot of beads, and a King Cake to cut.”
