It’s that time of year…Carnival season! And in New Orleans, we do it right! Roux La La is one of the many wonderful and amazing female marching groups that marches in parades during Mardi Gras and throughout the year.
Don’t recognize us? That’s because we do a different theme every Mardi Gras, but you can tell who we are from our colors, brown and green (the colors of a roux and parts of the Holy Trinity)!
Last Mardi Gras, we did a cabaret theme and got all gussied up in corsets and bustle skirts. Our theme doesn’t just mean we have a different costume every year, we also translate the theme to our choreography and music. Check us dancing and marching to some sexy tunes last year!
Every year is a surprise with our theme…can you guess what it will be for Mardi Gras 2016? We’ll give you a really obvious hint..we won’t necessarily be GLAMorous this year, but we definitely are going to ROCK!
Don’t miss us swampsteppin and bootyshakin in Pygmalion, Nyx and Thoth! Check out our calendar page for details.
Happy Mardi Gras!
Show us how much you love us by coming out to Eiffel Society on Friday, April 3 at 7pm! Not only do you get to see us shake it on stage, but you can help us win the Golden Skate! Get your tickets here.

The fall-time fun isn’t over y’all! Don’t miss the 1st Annual Brass Menagerie Parade this Saturday. Yours truly will be #swampsteppin with a bunch of other marching groups and brass bands! Check it out!
The ladies of Roux La La love everything about Halloween in New Orleans.
First on the agenda is Booty Shakin’.
As a New Orleans female marching group, we get to represent in not one, but 2… count ‘em 2… New Orleans Halloween parades, Anba Dlo and Krewe of Boo. We love it when our fans seek this New Orleans dance troupe during the parade and know to ask for our homemade spoon throws!
Speaking of spoons, here is a preview of some for Krewe of Boo:
We’re a crafty lot, and Halloween just screams out for the inner artist in everyone.
Next, we’re all about Swamp Steppin’…
The ladies of Roux La La get to dress spooky and masquerade as all manner of VooDoo characters this time of year. We even had a Roux Doux Halloween fundraiser a couple of years ago where we showed off some of our moves outside the parade circuit.
Last but not least, it’s a great time of year for some Pot Stirrin’ and Booze Guzzlin’…
Halloween signals the start of fall for Roux La La in New Orleans, and we’re fans of all the flavors of fall from pumpkin-spiced everything to Halloween-themed cocktails. Here are some Halloween-themed drinks and recipes for a spooktacular night:
1. Make yourself a “Green Goblin” or grab a bottle of “Carnivor” Cabernet Sauvignon.
2. Make some “Pumpkin Fluff” for snacking so you’re not tempted by the candy bowl.
3. Get dolled up in some spooky garb so you can turn off the lights and hit the town when the candy’s all gone!
Happy Halloween, y’all!!!!
Come see us get our RouxDoux on in the 7th Annual Anba Dlo Parade! We’ll be shakin’ it in the Marigny on Saturday, October 18. Parade begins at 6:00 p.m. For more info visit the official Anba Dlo website.
