We have "fallen for" a wonderful band called Brother Joscephus - and they are playing a Mardi Gras celebration on Friday Feb 27th close to the Shul - at Union Square Ballroom.   Coincidentally, their moves have mirrored the Shuls' - in previous years they played this benefit at the Angel Orensanz center.
 
They put on an incredible show - wonderful musical talent, spirit, and showmanship.  The music is a mix of New Orleans street music, gospel, soul, R&B - and more.  There has been a standing crowd up front and dancing the 3 times I saw them.
 
They are also playing in Brooklyn (their home base) on March 6th if that is better for folks.  There is a bit of a Jewish tie-in - Brother Joscephus is "band name" of David Mendelsohn.
 
Their music might match the taste of many at the Shul.  Great music from the heart!  There are tickets to match any budget.
  
Here is a link to BroJo's website.  There are some videos and music clips there, and a calendar with shows and links for tix.  http://www.brotherjoscephus.com/
