Hit the Spot: Pardi Gras at Take a Break

Pardi Gras live at Take a Break in Brantford

Pardi Gras is in the house tonight. Everybody just have a good time.

Two keyboards and a microphone (where it’s at) plus a set of drums, a guitar and a bass; not to mention five musicians looking for a good time; bibbidy-bobbity-boo you’ve got yourself a Pardi Gras.

Recently BrantfordBands was down at Take a Break to catch a great band in a great new venue.
“But wait,” I hear you object, “Take a Break isn’t new, and since when do bands go there?”  Since new owners Bill and Lisa took over, that’s when.  Renovations have transmogrified the inside of the bar into a brand new place; with league quality pool tables
(for those of the billiard ball smacking persuasion: there’s also free pool on Friday nights)
a new clean sports theme and an open stage area for bands to ply their trade;
Take a Break just ain’t what she used to be – It’s better.

“King Kong ain’t got sh*t on them.” – Denzel W.

Pardi Gras took full advantage of the new-and-improved Take a Break and proceeded to lay down some smooth rock, funky blues and a little bit of Wu-Tang Clan (for the ladies).
No genre is safe; hide yo blues, hide yo rock, hide yo pop, cause Pardi Gras playin’ everything out here!

Their style transformed the sports bar into an old saloon; dueling pianos (keyboards, same difference) faced off within the confines of the four yellow walls, not fighting each other but working together to create a wonderful musical barrage of sound-bullets which fire off rapidly to compel you to dance.

Live at Take a Break, Pardi Gras

“What they play is life.” -Louis A.

Whether belting out classic rock hits or getting down with some bluesy New Orléans flavored rock, Pardi Gras is a force to be reckoned with.  Three lead singers take turns at the helm of the rock-it ship; each with their own distinct sound and style; and it allows the band to journey across a vast musical landscape.  The juicy bass and rambunctious drums carry each song forth like Valkyries in the night. Pardi Gras is a group of five talented musicians who meld into one massive group with a singular mission: get you Pardi-ing.

Like Pardi Gras! Do it now!  It will fill your facebook with shiny happy rainbows and kittens will shoot forth from the bowels of the internet into your fb feed whence joy will spread like peanut-butter on your face.  Or it will keep you updated on upcoming Pardi Gras shows and the latest Pardi Gras news.  One of the above will surely happen if you Like Pardi Gras on the book of faces.
