Two bands direct from New Orleans — Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Cha Wa — will be bringing Mardi Gras to the Ridgefield Playhouse on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

For more than 40 years, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has taken brass band music and incorporated it into a blend of bebop jazz, funk and R&B/soul. New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit, Cha Wa radiates the fiery energy of the best features of the city’s street culture, the venue said in a news release.

The night is complete with Mardi Gras beads at the door and Hurricanes at the bar. This show is part of Moffly Media Evenings of Art Wine & Jazz Series and sponsored by Pullman & Comley LLC. There will be a free wine tasting and art exhibit by Katie Ré Scheidt in the lobby at 6:45 p.m.

Ridgefield Playhouse, 80 E. Ridge. Wednesday, Feb. 27, 7:30 p.m. $39.50. 203-438-5795,
