- We adore the “second line” brass band parades!
The wedding second line celebrates newlyweds as they begin their journey of love as a married couple. A jazz band plays and parades through the streets with the married couple dancing and hoisting beautiful umbrellas and parasols while the rest of the wedding party, the “second line”, waves handkerchiefs in the musical celebration.
