To our concerned and loyal friends of Ace's:
There are many rumors floating around town about the closing of Ace's Live. Ace's has NOT been sold. If it was sold, we would be closed. We have been exploring options of possibly relocating it in Bradenton in the future, but nothing has been decided and certainly not finalized. It is business as usual for all of us and live music lives! As always, thank you for your continued support!

Friday February 27 – Cha Wa – 9 pm


Mardi Gras Indian Funk Band

$12 Adv $15 DOS

The infectious music and dazzling stage show of Cha Wa has been described as “funk with feathers” – a sound rooted in traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian music mixed with funk and soul, creating a non-stop groove machine.  See the HBO series “Treme” for more details on the culture of Mardi Gras Indians, whose history dates in the Crescent City dates from 1885. Cha Wa, meaning “We’re coming for ya!” is a slang phrase used by every Mardi Gras Indian tribe. The band features legendary Mardi Gras Indians Irving “Honey” Banister and J’Wan Boudreaux on vocals and Kerry “Boom Boom” Vessell on bass drum, along with New Orleans music veterans Joe Gelini on drum set, John Fohl on guitar, Bill Richards on bass, and Steve Malinowski on organ.
