101 Runners
101 Runners For 40 years Mardi Gras Indian funk has forged its course in the world of contemporary music and now reaches a new stage with the emergence of the 101 Runners, a remarkable ensemble fronted by Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, a formidable singer, powerful moral presence and fearless leader of men, and emerging master singer War Chief Juan Pardo of the Golden Comanches on Wild Indian vocals.

They're backed by a relentless rhythm section led by drummer Ajay Mallery with Lionel Batiste Jr. on bass drum, Boubacaar Cissikko on African drum, founder Chris Jones at the congas, Jimmy Carpenter on baritone saxophone and brilliant new additions June Yamagishi on guitar, Kirk Joseph on sousaphone.
