2nd Line parades are a New Orleans wedding tradition for many occasions, but especially in leading the bride, groom, and their guests from the ceremony to the reception location. With hankees and umbrellas, the attendees have authority over all vehicle traffic as they dance their way to food, music, and more dancing!!!
Filming the New Wave Brass Band was absolutely electrifying! Even when working a gig, there is no way to be surrounded by such musical gusto and not dance for a few measures!
Enjoy this super 8 wedding clip, and dance along! Stay tuned for more from this wedding video.
