May 27, 2015 - Rodd Bland (Bobby Blue Bland's son - you'll see him around 1:40) emotionally carries Lucille at the helm of the procession. Barbara Blue sings "The Thrill is Gone" with members from the Beale St Procession Band and the Mighty Souls Brass Band. This was a powerful send off by the Memphis music community.
