Satchmo SummerFest Picks- Sunday

With a dearth of second lines since Father’s Day, the season doesn’t start back until late August, fans of dancing in the streets don’t want to miss the parade that follows the Jazz Mass at St. Augustine Church.  It begins around noon with lots of music and second line club members strutting in their finest.  When you get to the festival site, check out the Baby Boyz Brass band.  This group of youngsters is the latest in a long line of brass band stretching back to they days of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong himself.  Immediately after they play, head over to the other outdoor stage for the elders of the brass band tradition, the Tremé Brass Band.  The day ends with the 10th annual Trumpet Tribute featuring nearly all the trumpeters in town.
