Yellow Cab Tavern will host a Mardi Gras Celebration featuring music from Ernie Johnson from Detroit and Freakquency on Friday, February 21st. The night of funk music will also include drink specials on Dark ’n’ Stormy cocktails and Abita Beer. The cover charge begins at 8:00pm, and music begins at 9:00pm.
“What an opportunity to celebrate Mardi Gras a few days early with two fantastic bands,” said Event Organizer Brian Johnson. “During carnival season, the whole point is to celebrate, which is just what we’ll do at the Ernie Johnson event.”
The celebration includes performances from Dayton’s Freakquency and Cincinnati’s Ernie Johnson from Detroit. Freakquency focus on fun sets that incorporate covers, remixes, and original songs. Ernie Johnson from Detroit is a nine piece band that combines Afrobeat, funk, and jazz influences to create unique, high energy sounds. Both bands create party-like atmospheres and encourage listeners to get moving on the dance floor.
“It will be a very energetic, very danceable evening at Yellow Cab,” Johnson added. “Incredible funk music and early Mardi Gras drinks right here in Dayton? It doesn’t get much better than that!”
Ernie Johnson from Detroit and Freakquency will perform at Yellow Cab Tavern on Friday, February 21st at 8:00pm.
