This is the first Mardi Gras concert Smith has performed at the Community House, and the second he has played at the Larcom, where the wall decorations add to the spirit, he said.
He will supplement his core of New Orleans natives with plenty of local talent, which will include vocalist Diane Disanto, who will appear at the show in Hamilton.
“We have some students from the New England Conservatory on trumpet and drums, and one graduate of the conservatory on bass,” he said. “I have a couple of other surprises.”
