Mardi Gras With Dr. John

The parade started at 8 am. We were located just off Canal St. The floats were really big. As they threw the beads some became wrapped around the overhead cable for the streetcar only inches above their heads.
It was great to see so many youngsters in the bands. Not that many tunes - mostly drumming.
In the evening l made my way to the Spotted Cat venue on Frenchman.  The band was Twisted Dixie featuring Dr John  on piano. (see pic) Fantastic session with standing room only.
Making my way home in the early hours I got to play washboard with one of the street bands. 
Guided bus tour around the city today.
