New Orleans native and Endymion grand marshal Jon Batiste surprised a Mississippi university drum line by joining them for a jam session during the parade.
The musician came down from his Endymion float on Saturday to jam with the Alcorn State University drum line. The moment was captured in a video posted on social media.
Batiste later tweeted the video and said it “was a great moment.”
Batiste is an internationally acclaimed musician and composer. He also serves as the bandleader and musical director for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
