Uncle Lionel

Below is a fabulous photo Lee Crum snapped of Uncle Lionel last weekend. He is the oldest man still marching the streets of any brass band in New Orleans. At the ripe age of 79, he has been playing the drums and marching in funeral processions and street parades since he was eight years old. Unbelievable! Click here to see Uncle Lionel in action with the Treme Brass Band, which he has been a member of for over thirty years.
