Watch Oakwood's Second Line marching band perform "Down at Papa Joe's" at Saturday's Samedi Gras celebration, held on Saturday rather than the traditional Tuesday. The loosely assembled band, made up of neighborhood residents, has now played for four Mardi Gras parties along with various Christmas and Fourth of July parades. Video by Margo Knight Metzger
