One thing is for certain, you will never get the same BINGO! Show twist and Friday night was certainly no exception. The New Orleans Bingo! Show took its avant-garde carnival style show to the heart of the quarter. The residence of the evening was One Eyed Jacks. Once the location of the historic Toulouse Theater, One Eyed Jacks has long served as the perfect spot for BINGO! to truly shine and do their thing.
The stage was adorned with older model static-ridden television sets strewn randomly across the stage, creating a rather disorienting visual effect. At the front of the stage on the right hand side hung a trapeze swing that would get utilized a couple times throughout the show. Each musician’s space was balanced by the chaos that would spring up around them.
The night’s main event was the always-enjoyable playing of bingo itself. Crowd participation was heavily encouraged while the band played the theme of the game. After Bingo, the band played a few more songs, accompanied by a group of acrobats during one of their musical interludes.
