Join the Fat Bankers
Welcome to the Fat Bankers! We are a social and charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the Carnival experience promoting the Funk arts, and to relieving the distressed.
The Funk Must Be Heard
Mardi Gras each year brings people from every part of New Orleans and the World together on the streets for a celebration of love, equality, humanity and joy. The togetherness of this time is reflected in the Mardi Gras tricolor of purple, green and gold, which represent Justice, Power and Faith. The Fat Bankers work to build on that all year round by bringing music – the Funk – to underserved communities and helping people in New Orleans and throughout the Nation. And we have immense fun doing it!

My many years of being part of the Funky Tucks has enriched my life in many ways. The friendships established will be cherished for generations as my children and now friends with the offspring of other Fat Bankers. Our community is unique, rewarding, and a tremendous amount of fun! Funk On!!
Funky Tucks brings an undeniable and positively funkifiable spirit to everything they do. Their energy is contagious and their unique contribution to Mardi Gras cannot be overstated. Funky Tucks brings it… everywhere they go!
My many years of being part of the Funky Tucks has enriched my life in many ways. The greatest ride of my life!
