Other great entertainers include the Treme Brass Band, Fredy Omar, Lucky Lou, Creole Wild West Mardi Gras Indians, The Black Men of Labor, Sistahs Making a Change, Kuumba Institute, gospel choirs from New Home Family Worship Center and New Hope Baptist Church, and more.  Be there for the tribute to the late pastors Robert C.
