Second Line, Memorial Shows Planned for Uncle Lionel Batiste
Updated 4:30 p.m.
Tremé Brass Band leader Benny Jones was on WWOZ this morning to talk about the legacy of his late, longtime musical sidekick Uncle Lionel Batiste. Amid the reminiscing, Jones said funeral arrangements for Uncle Lionel, who died on Sunday of cancer, weren't finalized yet. But by this afternoon, word started circulating that a second line to honor the New Orleans music icon will be Friday, July 13, at Tuba Fats Square (St. Philip and N. Robertson), starting at 5 p.m.
Another remembrance concert is planned for Friday, July 13, at Sweet Lorraine's Jazz Club (1931 St. Claude Ave.). Taking the stage to honor the legend will be trumpeters Kermit Ruffins and Kid Merv, singer Michael Baptiste, NOLA R&B mainstay Deacon John, singer Danon Smith and jazz violinist Michael Ward. The show starts at 7 p.m. Information about a cover charge was not immediately available.
On Wednesday, July 11, the Tremé Brass Band is turning its regular gig at Candlelight Lounge (925 N. Robertson, Tremé ), where Uncle Lionel dazzled - and dipped - the crowd week in and week out, into a tribute to their late bass drummer. Always a spot for downtown brass musicians to pass by and sit in on a few songs, many of Uncle Lionel's friends are expected to show up in memoriam. The gig starts at 9 p.m. The cover for the weekly gig is $10.
On sale at the gig (and in general) will be the Tremé Bicentennial Poster, featuring Uncle Lionel. The New Orleans Multicultural Center is donating $10 from every poster sold toward Batiste's funeral costs. Posters cost $35 each. Donations to the Uncle Lionel Batiste Memorial Fund are also being accepted at any Liberty Bank.
