Because of unrelenting rains and flooding, "Uncle" Lionel Batiste was not able to be interned on Friday, July 20, 2012 as planned. Attendees of the funeral nonetheless went forth into the deluge, playing and parading through Treme for hours after services at Mahalia Jackson Theater ended. His body was returned to the Charbonnet-Labat Funeral Home and his official jazz funeral procession has been rescheduled for Monday, July 23, 2012 11 am starting at the Charbonnet-Labat on the corner of North Claiborne Avenue and St. Philip Street.

The route of Monday's jazz funeral procession has not been announced.
