Mardi Gras with Jay’s Funky Donkey – Parade After Party

February 21, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Tonight’s show immediately follows Mississippi Avenue’s Mardi Gras Parade!

Jay’s Funky Donkey will funk you up. Led by multi-dimensional musical artist Jeff Chilton, the ensemble is the sonic outlet for Chilton’s rambunctious trombone playing, smooth vocals, and original psychedelic effects. Backed by pocket bass, driving guitar and p-h-a-t drums, Jay’s Funky Donkey, is here to make  you move. The band performs Mardi Gras classics for this special event.

After graduating from Ithaca College in 2014, Chilton worked for 2 years aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise ships, performing in over 30 countries and 3 continents with notables such as The Platters, The Las Vegas Tenors, and The Diamonds. In 2016, Chilton settled in Portland to pursue original creative music as both a sideman and band leader. During his Portland career, he has played with international indie band Broken Social Scene, as well as local PDX favorites Dirty Revival, Onion the Man, and the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble.
