What you'll do

So you will experience a New Orleans Second Line Parade or Second Line Experience with one of the Former "King" of " Treme " There are dozens of different second line parades put on throughout the year, usually on Sunday afternoons, and held in the French Quarter and neighborhoods all across the city. They range in size, level of organization and traditions, but in all cases they will include a brass band, jubilant dancing in the street and members decked out in a wardrobe of brightly colored suits, sashes, hats and bonnets, parasols and banners, melding the pomp of a courtly function and the spontaneous energy of a block party, albeit one that moves a block at a time. The parades are not tied to any particular event, holiday or commemoration; rather, they are generally held for their own sake and to let the good times roll. Second lines trace their roots back to the 19th century and the fraternal societies and neighborhood organizations that collectively provided insurance and burial services to members, especially among the African American community.

I am a New Orleans native, born & raised here and very active in the community. Just to give you guys a heads up, I'm one of the former Second Line "Kings of "TREME" which I handed my crown over to the legendary "Trombone Shorty" so I'm looking forward to educating you on the history and culture of my beautiful city of New Orleans
