This is what’s important about New Orleans music: It’s always important. It’s always relevant. No matter what age group. Today’s kids are still going to Mardi Gras parades and hearing second line rhythms and songs like “Hey Pocky Way” in the streets. It is a part of our upbringing. That’s how I grew up. That’s how my mom and dad grew up. That’s how I raised my kids. It’s one of the ways our culture renews itself every year.
