Second Lines

The Boogie Men can also arrange a pre or post wedding reception second line parade. Whether it is a post-service second line parade from the church to the reception hall or a festive march after your reception to your next destination, we can coordinate a traditional New Orleans brass band for you. The Boogie Men typically work with the Funky Bone Brass Band, led by longtime New Orleans trombonist and bandleader Maurice Trosclair. The band is comprised of some of New Orleans' top New Orleans musicians. These seasoned professionals know how to jam and will make your second line parade an exciting, fun and memorable New Orleans musical experience.
