    If you cannot be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, do celebrate Mardi Gras with us at the historic Alameda Elks Lodge Ballroom while dancing to the glorious music of Franklin Beau Davis and The Brassworks, who will play an evening of popular late 19th Century dance music, ranging from the most exquisite waltzes, mazurka waltzes, quadrilles, and mixers to exhilarating polkas. As usual, the band will also play our favorite Neo-Victorian dances “The Congress of Vienna” and “The Bohemian National Polkas” and some delightful musical surprises.

    After the 7pm vintage ballroom dance lesson, formal dancing to our wonderful band follows from 8pm to midnight. No partners required. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

    Mid to late Victorian evening dress, fancy dress, fantasy costume, or modern evening dress is admired but not required and costumes in shades of purple, green, and gold are very welcome.
    Our usual no host bar will be available and a light complimentary snack buffet (your potluck contributions are welcome) will be served.

    Tickets are $20 in advance (by February 23) or $25 at the door. For ticket information, see If you have any questions, email us at
