Before we knew it, Groovy 7 was kicking off the final song: the traditional New Orleans second line! I explained the second line a long time ago (and I also considered hiring a separate brass band to take this parade to the streets, but eventually decided it wasn’t worth the money/hassle), but it’s basically a big conga line with umbrellas and napkins to wrap up the reception.
If you want to listen along to get into the spirit, here’s the standard Mardi Gras song we second lined to. This song was the one we wanted, but once again (last time!), Past Pyramid didn’t send the right document to the band, so they didn’t know to play it. But you can listen to either one. It’s like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Except…the entire picture and story is the same. Oh well, do what you wanna.
