Orpheus is honoring a host of New Orleans musicians, who will ride in the parade and perform at the Orpheuscapade. They include Irma Thomas, Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Deacon John Moore, Big Freedia and others. At the parade, the krewe is distributing large gold doubloons featuring Pete Fountain. There's also an oversized theme medallion.
