January 7, 2018- New Orleans, LA - Member of the Perfect Gentlemen Social & Pleasure Club, Rapper T. Lyons, rests at a stop along the Second Line route. January 7th marked the start of the Parade Season which lead to the Mardi Gras Parade on February 13, 2018. Second line is a quintessential New Orleans tradition. It is a brass band parade where the main section is comprised of the members of an actual social club with the parading permit as well as the brass band. Those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the "second line." The Second line parades are often referred to as a jazz funeral without a casket or mourners but they carry the same traditional march down the streets of New Orleans. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bd0pdZCHbdF/
