Perfect Gentlemen and Dignified Achievable Men & Women Second Line (Photos)



The annual Father’s Day second line was put on by The Perfect Gentlemen’s Social Aid & Pleasure Club along with The Dignified Achievable Men & Women Social & Pleasure Club (DAM). The paraders strut through Central City, stopping along the way for refreshments and “street-meat” straight-off-the-smokers that are resting on the backs of various pick-up trucks. The event featured TBC Brass Band, and started and ended at the historic Gladstone Bar & Lounge.
