Check out photos from the Revolution Social Aid & Pleasure Club's annual second line from March 27th, 2011. From fabulous pin-stripe-suited gentlemen to fine, roaring-20's-flapper ladies, to a beautiful queen - this parade had it all and the pictures are amazing.
On this week’s episode of New Orleans All the Way Live, we enjoy the sounds of WWOZ’s "Piano Night" from years past while getting ready for Piano Night 2011. WWOZ's flagship event will take place at the New Orleans House of Blues on May 2nd.
WWOZ honors the fallen heroes of New Orleans music who passed away in 2010, including Herman Leonard, Brandon Franklin, Albert "June" Gardner, Walter Payton, and many more that are sorely missed. During their lives, they made New Orleans and jazz music better for their dedicated work and love. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends.
