NEW ORLEANS (WGNO)— Musician Amanda Shaw is excited to be celebrating 12th Night—the start of Carnival. She’s headlining a big show with Big Sam and Choppa at Tipitina’s on Friday night.

“Bringing in funk, bounce, hip-hop, Cajun music which is what I play, it is what New Orleans is all about. Bringing all the world’s together,” Shaw said.

And she promises her show will be just as sweet as a Carnival king cake!

Amanda Shaw and Choppa have a new song called, “Louisiana Saturday Night,” which you can expect to hear at the show.

General Admission tickets are still available for the show at Tipitina’s. The show starts at 7 p.m.

Amanda Shaw is also currently working on songwriting in Nashville, but says there is obviously no place like home, right here in Louisiana.
