Funeral Parade for Fred Contrada

“Friends and family will mark Fred Contrada‘s death the same way he lived his life – in style.”

“In a nod to his love of New Orleans, where he waited tables after graduating college, his family will hold a New Orleans-style parade, led by the Expandable Brass Band, from the Forbes Library to Hotel Northampton at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.”

His obituary in the Daily Hampshire Gazette included this invitation:  “Please join us for a New Orleans-style parade and celebration of Fred’s life on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. when the Expandable Brass Band will lead a parade from Forbes Library to the Ballroom at the Hotel Northampton for a celebration from 1-4 p.m.”

[Our band will leave soon after the parade; we have a rehearsal elsewhere, starting at 1:15pm, for another gig.]
