The Whole Gritty City

Watched this documentary last night. It aired on CBS in February but it probably can be found on demand. If you were in the band during your school days, this will bring back a lot of memories. It's about kids in New Orleans post Katrina who are in pubic school bands trying to keep their lives together and grow up in that city. Their participation in the band is helping them to be focused and off the streets. If you watched the HBO series, Treme, there was a story arc about one of the characters who was a musician and became involved with working as a band director. The documentary somewhat parallels that story.
