Vintage professional wrestling-meets-experimental jazz-meets-psychedelic visual art duo Wednesday Night Titans will head to New Orleans, LA’s Toulouse Theatre on Friday, April 26th, 2024 (technically early-morning 4/27) to defend their Jazz Fest late-night belt with an after-midnight showdown [get tickets].

The duo, which features decorated wrestling champ/bassist Ted Technical and his trash-talking manager/drummer Stix “Hit Man” Jenkins, has made a name for itself by tapping into the zany antics of 1980s-era icons like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage to create “an over-the-top mind-gasm of roid-warrior madness and performance art profundity.”

While some Wednesday Night Titans die-hards have noted that Ted Technical looks like Gov’t Mule’s Kevin Scott, the bassist declined to comment on his resemblance to the wrestler. Instead, he asked us to remind people heading to Jazz Fest to come see Mule’s guest-filled headlining set at Daze Between New Orleans on Wednesday, May 1st.

Ted Technical, on the other hand, had this to say: “Jazzfest… more like ‘JABRONI-fest!!‘”

Stix Jenkins often draws comparisons to experimental jazz drummer Zach Danziger. Though Danziger said he was not aware of Jenkins’ true identity, he noted that he had been fortunate enough to experience the mysterious project live in the past. Beyond the music, he explained, it was the electric ringside atmosphere that made the show memorable. “This is a Blue Man Group-ish type [thing],’” Danziger told Live For Live Music. “It’s a thing you go see.”

Who will Wednesday Night Titans see in the ring for their Fest by Nite melee? That depends on who’s got enough guts to take a shot at the champ: As Ted Technical said of the event, “If you people want to see the greatest show on the planet, look no further. We are a bigger deal than the Grateful Dead and the Beatles combined and if you consider yourself a real music fan, you can’t miss this show… Oh yeah, one other thing—to all the musicians that are in NOLA that week, come get your free music lesson.”
