Join the Fat Bankers
Welcome to the Fat Bankers! We are a social and charitable organization 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!
