Jazz on the QCs Riverfront Commemorates the 2008 Flood - LISTEN

This month, musicians from a local school and New Orleans helped the Quad Cities commemorate the 2008 flood. The University of Iowa sponsored a performance by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band at Davenport's LeClaire Park. The band from New Orleans performed in seven cities across Iowa this month, to mark the 5th anniversary of the 2008 flood. And the Williams Intermediate School Hornets kicked off the evening, leading a "second line" parade, from the River Music Experience to the bandshell.

On today's WVIK News Focus, before going to the concert, Michelle O'Neill tagged along with the Hornets Band Director, Kimberly Carr, and her rag-tag band.
