Mardi Gras transforms Summerhall this February – grab your masks and some dancin’ shoes for a night down in New Orleans.


NEHH present a sensory smorgasbord with:

  • Swampfog bringing the horns – the brass-heavy 7 piece band that tears up the Jazz Bar on the regular
  • A cacophony of cocktails from our resident mixologist
  • Astounding costumes presented and modelled by the QMU Costume Design Construction BA (Hons) course
  • Tunes provided throughout by TB-Sí on the decks
  • and more TBA


Costumes welcome and VERY encouraged – come on down to The Big Easy with us as we celebrate one of the world’s best parties this February!



Swampfog are a horn-heavy 7 piece band devoted to the music of New Orleans and its wide reach through jazz, blues and funk. Since their formation in early 2016 they have built a loyal following through their late night residency at The Jazz Bar, performed a live session for BBC Radio Scotland’s “Jazz Nights at The Quay” series, and presented Swampfog play The Meters for Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, expanding to a 13-piece monster with guests from New Orleans, paying tribute to the founding fathers of New Orleans funk.
