Galveston Mardi Gras 2019 - Saturday, February 23rd

Mark your calendars!

Krewe of Gambrinus Parade
Saturday, February 23, 2019
Seawall Blvd, Galveston
6:00 PM Parade Start

Houkulele has been asked once again to participate in the Krewe of Gambrinus Mardi Gras Parade. The event is really fun and a rare chance to play for 250,000 people!

The Krewe of Gambrinus is one of the kickoff parades for Galveston Island’s two-week Mardi Gras celebration. The parade starts at the Galveston Seawall at 6 PM and ends about 2-3 hours later at the far west end of ‘The Strand” near the Train Museum. The parade route is a little over 4 miles. This year’s theme is “Let the Good Times Roar,” so we’ll be playing easy, animal-related songs. We'll need lots of riders and walkers to pull off a good show!

Want to be part of the fun? Join the discussion on our Facebook group!

Houkulele T-Shirts!

At long last you can get your very own Texas flag-themed Houkulele t-shirt!


The shirts are available in both men's and women's sizes, and I've done my best to keep the price as low as possible: $14 + shipping & hansling.  The goal here is to get them in people's hands rather than make money on the deal.

You can order them from https://teespring.com/houkulele

I've set things up so the shirts go to print every 3 days, so don't freak out if you see that you only have a few days left to order.  I'm hoping to keep them available for a month or two (or more).

Spread the word!
