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 wasnâ€™t worth the money/hassle), but itâ€™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, hereâ€™s the standard Mardi Gras song we second lined to. This song was the one we wanted, but once again (last time!), Past Pyramid didnâ€™t send the right document to the band, so they didnâ€™t know to play it. But you can listen to either one. Itâ€™s like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Except…the entire picture and story is the same. Oh well, do what you wanna.
