The Wild Bohemians
We are the WILD BOHEMIANS!!! Up goes the cry at a tradition that has brought the sounds, dance, and raucous joy of Mardi Gras to Philadelphia since 1984. The band’s repertoire consists of any and all music from Louisiana, including Cajun, Zydeco, Dixieland, Mardi Gras Street Music, Jazz, R&B, and a specialty the Bohemians called Swamp Stomp. The band also shows a penchant for silliness, wearing wild costumes, telling strange tales, making weird noises, and playing novelty songs that strike their fancy.
Each Fat Tuesday The Wild Bohemians have played to jubilant dancing audiences. The party has expanded to include a parade held on a Sunday afternoon before Mardi Gras (February 24th this year) featuring the band marching down South Street, trailed by costumed revelers, stopping in every bar along the route for a short set and a tall drink. The band is made up of professional musicians who play in other bands and venues all year round, but wouldn't miss this date to party with The Wild Bohemians. The line-up at times consists of over 20 players on stage. Since the band drinks for free on parade day, fans bring anything that makes a noise and claim to be ‘with the band’ The Wild Bohemians on Mardi Gras in Philadelphia, the next best thing to being on Bourbon Street!
