Lady Buckjumpers Back To School Picnic
  • Red Cotton
  • Lady Buckjumper's Back To School Picnic

This is year 20-something that the fabulous, charitable and party-loving Lady Buckjumpers have hosted their annual Back To School picnic. The event, which happened Sunday in City Park, has become a sought after and beloved tradition for adults in the community as well as the kids. DJs along with Rebirth Brass Band were on site, rocking the 200-plus crowd who enjoyed free food, drinks (cocktails as well as healthy juices), massages, barbers, manicures and pedicures, baton twirling lessons, hair braidings, group photos, kickball, dodge ball — an extravaganza of feel-good freebies designed to send the kids and their parents into the new school year feeling pampered, nurtured and loved.

Scenes from 2016 Satchmo SummerFest second line

Posted By on Thu, Aug 11, 2016 at 5:31 PM

Satchmo Summerfest 2016
  • French Quarter Festivals
  • Satchmo Summerfest 2016

As always, this year’s Satchmo SummerFest gave visitors and residents reason to celebrate. In addition to honoring the father of jazz Louis Armstrong with three days of free live music shows in the French Quarter, we got a taste of that second line flavor we’ve been feening for since June when parade season closes for the summer. While there are those diehards who would parade in the dead heat of New Orleans summer, most of us agree that sweating like a $2 hoe is not a cute look not to mention the real imminent threats to our health. And so we’ve come to depend on Satchmo second line to get us second line addicts over that two month hump.

As always, the Treme Brass Band, Grand Marshall Bo Monkey Red and the Baby Dolls set it off followed by the Zulus, Sudan and TBC Brass Band along with other clubs and bands. Check out Sunday’s scenery, allow it to soothe your soul while we wait for September.

Alton Sterling Peace Vigil March and Second Line

Sunday, July 10, 2016 5-7pm

Today’s peace march and second line is being spearheaded by Charles ‘Action Jackson’, radio DJ for WWOZ radio and ‘second line ambassador’, to show support for the family of Alton Sterling, who was killed by Baton Rouge police officers. “I’m tired.”, says a weary sounding Jackson. “I am a young Black man, born and raised in 9th ward. Fo so much killing going on, nobody more on radio that has a voice than me. I have to use that voice to keep people calm, to work with the police.”

Jackson, who worked over 36 years in law enforcement, says he can relate to the stresses police officers are under. “They have to make split decisions.” But says the goal of today’s event is “to stop the killing, stop the violence. We come in peace. We want to help everyone stay calm.”
