All performer proceeds benefit RESPOND, helping domestic abuse victims in the Boston area. All performer proceeds go to RESPOND.

Please spread the word!

We are Shaun Wolf Wortis and the Legendary Vudu Krewe.We’re a sprawling band of grizzled Boston musicians*, and super fans of oddball Rhythm & Blues music of mid-century New Orleans. We’ve been playing together for over a quarter century, a good run. When it comes to ‘balling’, you might not think Boston is in the same league as New Orleans, but we put up a good fight each year at the Boston Mardi Gras Ball.

The Ball is always a benefit show. We gave proceeds from the past two Mardi Gras Balls to the ACLU, and before that to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic, which treats aging musicians in need of health care. This year, we’re focusing local: All performer proceeds benefitRESPOND, helping domestic abuse victims in the Boston area.

* Shaun Wolf Wortis, Paul Ahlstrand, Ken Schopf, Ducky Carlisle, Marc Hickox, Chandler Travis, Dinty Child, Mark Sanchez, Joe Stewart, Cliff Spencer, Mark Caughill.
