Three Keys is a venue dedicated wholly to the magic that happens in New Orleans. Bottling this stuff would be impossible, so we decided to invite it in.
Big Chief Bo Dollis Jr. and the Wild Magnolias gang invoke the ancestors with their brand new kind of funk for our post-Endymion Mardi Gras party.
Though more a ceremonial group than a performing or touring band, the New Orleans Mardi Gras "Indian Tribe" the Wild Magnolias issued a critically acclaimed LP for Polydor in 1974. Bo Dollis, Monk Boudreaux, June Johnson, Jr., Crip Adams, Tobias Johnson, Bubba Scott, and James Smothersbrought the rich, fervent flavor of New Orleans to vinyl, backed by Willie Tee's band. The LP wasn't a huge seller, but it attracted so much media interest the Magnolias appeared at Carnegie Hall that year, as well as the Capitol Center in Washington D.C.
