CBS Displays New Orleans Marching Band Culture In “The Whole Gritty City” T. Piper February 18, 2014 TV/Movies CBS’ 48 Hours documents New Orleans’ marching band culture in a new production entitled The Whole Gritty City which aired February 15th. The documentary presents a unique American urban experience that few get to witness on a grand scale. The passion of those involved, the perspectives of children who know death at such a young age yet remain vigilant in their quest. Hosted by acclaimed musician and New Orleans’ own Winton Marsalis. As a bandsman myself, I really appreciate this view into the culture of what I’ve known whole life. Music will prevail Share this:TweetShare on Tumblr Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
