Summer 2016 and Red Dress Run 2016!

Summer 2016 and Red Dress Run 2016!

Summer 2016 has been flying by! With all of our private events, weddings, casino shows, and a SOLD OUT HOUSE OF BLUES for Beatles Fest, Summer 2016 has been one for the record books!

On Saturday August 13, The Mixed Nuts performed for The 2016 Red Dress Run in Armstrong Park in New Orleans. RDR was truly a classic New Orleans event: All participants (male and female) ran, crawled, or strolled through the streets of New Orleans in red dresses. The streets of the French Quarter were packed with party goers, with red as far as the eye can see. The “run” has been organized by The Hash House Harriers for many years — HHH is a most incredible “running” group of people who donation to several charities throughout the year.

The Nuts have performed for HHH in the past and they are ALWAYS a blast – so we knew Red Dress Run would be a moment for the record books.

With most of Louisiana staying under a severe weather warning most of the week, we were concerned that Red Dress Run may be subject to cancellation. We were thrilled that the powers that be allowed us a clear patch of sky during the first part of the afternoon on Saturday! While overcast, the clouds held off the heat, and The Nuts were able to perform to THOUSANDS of party-goers in Armstrong Park! To add even more fun to the afternoon, our good friends The Topcats followed us on stage for a fantastic set that went on until 4pm. The weather behaved and the party continued into the evening as thousands of Red Dress flooded the French Quarter until all hours of the night.

We’d like to thank Danny and the organizers of The Red Dress Run for having us perform! Check out our pictures from our crazy afternoon!
