My friend Travis and I arrived at Jackson Square and ran into my homeboys from the TBC Brass Band, who had been hired to lead a wedding procession from St. Louis Cathedral to Galvez Restaurant on the other side of Decatur Street. Of course, in New Orleans, nothing ever happens as planned, and the wedding proved to take a lot longer than expected, but seeing the comings and goings on Jackson Square on such a pleasant night was fun in its own right. One strange, wheeled contraption was comprised of a number of drums and gongs which a man was playing as he wheeled it around the square, and several groups of tourists were walking around on “haunted” or “voodoo” tours. Eventually, however, the wedding party emerged from the church with the bells ringing from the cupola, and the TBC band struck up to lead them on their way. They of course played a more traditional style than their usual repertoire, but it was still exciting. Once they arrived at the Galvez courtyard, they kept playing until everyone had entered the restaurant, and then they disappeared into the night.
