Second Line Alert: Single Men


Today, Super Sunday festivities are kicking off at A.L. Davis Park. All the Mardi Gras Indians will be out today, but that does not mean that second lines are stopping. Today (3.19), the Single Men Social Aid & Pleasure Club is ready to strut. The parade will mark the group's 22nd anniversary. 

 

The Single Men start their march at 2PM at the Daiquiri Lounge (4201 Washington Avenue). The Stooges Brass Band will provide the soundtrack. 

 

The parade is dedicated to former Single Men President Nathaniel Willis, late brother Roosevelt Frith, and the late Debbie Weary, who dressed the Single Men for years. 

 

2017's Grand Marshal duties will be fulfilled by Single Men Members. Former Grand Marshal Big Daddy is a member this year along with Richie Rich, Ditty, Carl, Patrick, and the late Roosevelt and Big E and Lynn. Honorary members are Tish, Gabby, Queen, Danna, and Karen.

 

The club's motto is "Building something new on an old foundation."
