2019 Young Men Olympian Second Line in New Orleans

2019 Young Men Olympian Junior Benevolent Association second line

The 2019 edition of the Young Men Olympian Junior Benevolent Association second line is in the books in New Orleans. The oldest club in the city has been rolling since the Civil War-era and has not shown any signs that they are going to relent.

They were on fire yesterday with multiple, well-honed divisions carousing wildly through the streets of Central City.

They hired over 50 of the best brass players in New Orleans to lead the processions(s)

Here’s what I saw. Link

I’ve been smoking big hunks of meat since I was a kid in the 80s but you’ll never hear me refer to myself as a ‘pitmaster’

That’s the most overused term in the modern barbecue lexicon. Perhaps one out of ten thousand men who cook meat have earned that sobriquet.

I’m a pit boss.

Listening to ‘It’s Real’ by Hot 8 Brass Band this afternoon. And you should too. Hot 8’s either the best or second best brass outfit in New Orleans by most reckonings.

Once a year the Italian American Marching Club throws a party at Piazza d’Italia in downtown New Orleans. A few dozen Italian girls dance the tarantella, a live band performs old Italian standards, and a cadre of Italian matrons put out a modest buffet.

It’s a trip.
