Response to Drum (Reply #1)

2. I only lived in the FQ for 3 and a half years, but my understanding...

Second lines are, essentially, funeral parades, led by a marching jazz band, with the mourners marching behind. It starts out somber, but turns into a celebration in honor of the person who died.

It is a New Orleans tradition. They can be spontaneous, or arranged.

I would assume the "organizer" is just that, the person who arranges for the jazz band.

Maybe some NOLA people could correct me?
