  • Traditional Jazz and Funeral Band

    The Funeral Jazz Band has long been part of the traditional New Orleans Funeral. Jazz Bands accompany the funeral mourners to the gravesite, playing slow spirituals, known as a “Dirge”. “Just a Closer Walk with Thee” and “Nearer My God to Thee” are two favorites. Once the body has been interned, the Jazz Band can begin to play some rousing New Orleans Jazz, known as the “Second Line” to celebrate the life of the recently deceased. One favorite is “When the Saints Come Marching In”, a tradition announcing to the community that another soul has gone home.
