Everybody Dance Now


A little dancing and eating lunch.

They came to dance. Normally that’s how it is at just about any second line. But, the Ole & Nu Style Fellas turned up about an hour late. No big deal. This is New Orleans. It gave the crowd time to grow and get revved up. Really revved up. Spectators. Participants. Passers By. They all danced a little. By the time the parade started rolling, the whole place was shaking. Shimming. Rocking. Rolling. With a little brass band music thrown in to spice things up.

Everybody had a good time. The weather helped. Bright blue skies, despite what weather predictions were earlier in the week. In know I’ll get blamed for that. Heh! It got a little hot. But, not a lot hot as the temperatures will turn later in second line season.

What could be better on a Sunday afternoon?

A little housekeeping. I’ll post a few more pictures from the Sunday’s second line as the week wears on. But, I’ll take a break from second lines for the next two weeks since it’s Jazzfest time. Second lining will return on May 10 with Westfest, the Westbank Mardi Gras Indians Super Sunday, and the Original Big 7 second line. Both on Mother’s Day. I’m going to have to do some dancing myself.

They came out dancing.

The crowd near Ooh Poo Pah Doo Bar got into it.
