BONE BAND

Every year during Jazz Fest a guy in The Garden District puts up a display on his porch, in solidarity with the event.

New Orleans is not a big city — these days it contains only about 350,000 souls, most of whom seem to believe that they’re part of one big neighborhood, at least during times of festival, and there are festivals in New Orleans most weeks of the year.

  1. Actually, he puts up a display for every holiday and festival known to New Orleans. His name is Rick Reardon, a member of The Outlaws motorcycle gang and one of the most reliable contractor/craftsmen in The Garden District. Rick patrols the neighborhood at all hours, walking his brown Lab, Sam. This summer, he’s moving on to a desert hideaway. We’re gonna miss him.
