    Stafford Agee, the trombone player for the Rebirth Brass Band, also masks as a Mardi Gras Indian as a Spy Boy for the Black Feathers. We followed Stafford on Super Sunday, the only day of the year all the Mardi Gras Indians parade into A.L. Davis Park in Central City, New Orleans and we interviewed him on his way to the Maple Leaf for his regular Tuesday night gig with Rebirth. Stafford talks about how he became an Indian and how he goes about putting on his suit. He also does a bit of singing, taking lead vocals as Rebirth goes through their rendition of "Big Chief." Footage filmed by Alejandro de los Rios and Jonathan Bachman. Concert audio recorded and mixed by Michael Seaman. Special thanks to Stafford Agee, Rebirth and the Maple Leaf.
