NEW ORLEANS MARCHING BANDS

THE HISTORY OF MARDI GRAS MARCHING BANDS GOES AS FAR BACK AS THE LATE 1800s, AFTER THE CIVIL WAR.

 NOT ONLY WERE THERE MILITARY BANDS, BUT FREED AFRICAN AMERICANS ALSO BEGAN FORMING BRASS BANDS ALL AROUND NEW ORLEANS. THESE BANDS BECAME A VITAL ELEMENT FOR AN IMPORTANT EVENT IN THE CITY,

 JAZZ FUNERALS (AKA SECOND LINES). THESE JAZZ FUNERALS WERE MARCHES FROM WHERE A CHURCH RECEPTION WAS HELD TO WHERE A LOVED ONE WOULD BE BURIED.

THE FAMILY, AND FRIENDS OF THE DECEASED, ALONG WITH A BRASS BAND, WOULD MARCH THE ENTIRE ROUTE WITH THE BODY. THEY WOULD SING SONGS, PLAY MUSIC, AND CELEBRATE  THE LOVED ONE’S DEPARTED SOUL REUNITING WITH GOD.

 

THANK YOU KW DIXIE

THANK YOU FANS.

 

AND THE BEAT GOES ON!

SEE YOU SATURDAY!
