Mama Digdown’s Brass Band will make Madison feel a bit like the Big Easy this Saturday night. WORT is honored to present this hot New Orleans-inspired 8-piece combo at our 40th Birthday Bash at the High Noon Saloon on December 5th. Erik, Roc & the rest of the boys with horns will take the stage at 8:00 p.m.
The High Noon Saloon is at 721 East Washington Avenue in Madison. The festivities run from 5:00 p.m. till 2:00 a.m. There’ll be fine cuisine from New Orleans Take-Out, a giant WORT birthday cake, a 50/50 cash raffle & six bands.
Mama Digdown’s Brass Band has released a slew of CDs since forming in 1993. They even cover Michael Jackson songs. They’ve toured & recorded throughout Europe & North America. But Madison is their home, so they’re serenading WORT fans for our 40th.
The suggested donation for the Birthday Bash is:
$20 for an All Nite ticket (includes dinner & cake); or
$10 for a Late Nite ticket (9:00 p.m. entry – with cake saved for latecomers).
Tickets are available at WORT (118 S. Bedford St.), at Lakeside Press on Willy Street & at High Noon Saloon – or you can score them at high-noon.com.
WORT & guest DJs will spin discs between bands. You must be at least 18 to be admitted. This special WORT 89.9 Community Radio fundraiser is sponsored by 5NINES Data, Delta Properties, Heartland Credit Union, Mother Fool’s Coffeehouse & ARA Automotive Repair.
WORT has been serving Madison-area listeners for four decades now. Come & we’ll let you eat cake at our 40th Birthday Bash. If you arrive by 8:00 you’ll get to enjoy a well-traveled, hard-hitting local brass band along with your Cajun/Creole dinner. Second-line umbrella optional.
