One Man Band

One Man Band

I've never seen a city more willing to put on a parade at the drop of a hat than New Orleans. No surprise: Dozens of competing Mardi Gras krewes who spend a year planning their *next* parade, jazz funerals, the nearly complete lack of open container laws...

Anyway, B & I were at our favorite breakfast place in New Orleans on our last day, having Bloody Mary's and mimosas while we were waiting for our table, and I heard this parade kick off outside. I asked a bunch of the help what it was about, and they were as clueless as me. Stepped outside, and it was apparently for the Sugar Bowl, but they had turned out a lot of local high school bands and the like to march. Saw this kid, and there was my shot.
