Most days, an American flag and a modest “Who Dat” yard sign decorate the tidy red-brick ranch house in Metairie. On game days, the Stars and Stripes are swapped out for a Saints flag: black and gold stripes, fleurs-de-lis instead of stars.
For 25 seasons, Hirstius and the Storyville Jazz Band have entertained Saints fans in the stands at home games. They bisect the social strata of the Superdome, moving from terrace seats to private suites, dispensing Dixieland jazz and demonstrating for friend and foe alike that the Saints reside in New Orleans, and this is how we roll.
