HEAT UP THE STREETS WITH THE 610 STOMPERS
4th Annual 610 Stompers Ball Crawl: A Streetcar Named Da’ Fire
Great Balls of Fire! The 610 Stompers are hot steppin’ it on Saturday, June 8th for their 4th Annual Ball Crawl, appropriately titled, “A Streetcar Named Da’ Fire” and you’re invited! Nobody to hold you back from breakin’ it down with the Ordinary Men with Extraordinary Moves!
Always a good cause and a great time, the 610 Stompers bring their extraordinary moves to the masses once again in the Uptown area and include some bars that had the misfortune of catching FIRE this past year. But like a phoenix from the ashes, they’re ready to quench our thirsts between epic dance-offs, contests (including a SWAYZE screaming contest)with coveted prizes and good times that you won’t easily forget while rockin’ your best 80's retro look. We’re talking leg warmers, throwback tank tops and (if you’re blessed with the ability to grow one) full mustaches!
Come learn the DANCE MOVES then DANCE the MOVES that premiered at our 3rd Annual Sweet 610 Debutante Ball: Headbangers Ball before we embark on our journey under the oaks. Our Ball Crawl line-up includes The Kingpin, Grit’s Bar, F&M’s, Fat Harry’s, Superior Seafood and Le Bon Temps (in no particular order).

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Patience, my friend. To be announced…
When & Where
Mardi Gras. Jazz. Voodoo. The Saints. Just a few of the venerable and unique institutions the great City of New Orleans has given to the world. Now, from the cultural epicenter of America, come the city’s newest icons – the 610 Stompers.
Conceived on a simple premise – that Ordinary Men could and should entertain the world with Extraordinary Moves – the 610 Stompers were born in the summer of 2009, just as our beloved Saints began their march to the Superbowl. As fate would have it, the Stompers were baptized in the twin crucibles of the now famous “Buddy D” parade and the “Lombardi Gras” Superbowl Parade – our first two public performances.
From there we have gone on to perform in Mardi Gras parades, at Hornets games, on local television and radio, and we’ve lent a hand to many charitable organizations in their fundraising efforts. We’ve even danced on the “Tonight Show”.
It’s been an unforgettable ride, but our best is yet to come.
The 610 Stompers is a diverse group of ordinary men, from their 20s to their 60s. We are doctors, lawyers, professionals, laborers, students, teachers, and parents. We are different but we’re the same, and we’re brought together by our ongoing desire to entertain the world with our “Extraordinary Moves”, and in doing so, give back to the community that we love.
