Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan to Headline Mardi Gras Parades
Bryan has been announced as the musical headliner for the 2015 Endymion Extravaganza, which takes place on Valentine's Day. The event, held at the Carnival Ball at the Superdome, comes in the middle of the 2015 leg of Bryan's That's My Kind of Night Tour, which is why he is a perfect fit.
"Luke Bryan is so popular right now, the ladies love him, and the parade is on Valentine's Day, so I think he'll do well," Ed Muniz, captain for the Endymion Super Krewe, tells radio station WDSU.
Meanwhile, Bentley will headline the 2015 Orpheuscapade, set to take place two days later (Feb. 16) at the annual Lundi Gras celebration. His performance will include a first-ever, more interactive, high-tech experience.
"We are very excited to not only bring another first to Mardi Gras but to do it in the theatrical fashion for which the Krewe of Orpheus is known," Sonny Borey, the krewe's captain says (quote via NOLA.com).
The 'Say You Do' singer will be joined by an 11-piece show band, No Limits, and Wes Raymond & the Soul Factory for the event.
