Matt "Guitar" Murphy highlights Mardi Gras party

Its ad slogan is “Where there’s always a party,” but Mardi Gras Casino  this weekend has to ramp it up. Tuesday is the casino’s namesake day.

To celebrate Mardi Gras, the casino has booked music and giveaways through Tuesday.

The Blues Brothers, featuring Matt “Guitar” Murphy, will perform in the casino and do a photo op with the Bluesmobile on the veranda from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday. On the big day itself, Iko Iko with Nicole Yarling will play from 6 to 10 p.m. inside the casino. The Porchdogs will appear at 7 outside, and JP Soars and the Red Hots will take the stage at 8:30, followed by fireworks at 10 p.m.

Now, on to the loot: Promotions include the $25,000 Cash and Bonus Play giveaway, in which players who earn 50 base points will be entered in a drawing to be one of three contestants. Each player will pick a mask, hoping to select the one containing $25,000 cash and bonus play.
