A huge New Orleans Saints football fan, Wilk McKean aka Dr Breeze has released a single called Super Bowl Mambo Part Deux, celebrating the team’s stunning victory in Super Bowl XLIV. He grew up in New Orleans and moved to Ponchatoula, a small town on the north shore of Lake Ponchartrain at the age of 12, just two years before the franchise began. Like so many Saints fans, he suffered years of disappointment from one of the worst teams in league history, but like so many Saints fans, he stayed true to the Black and Gold and never gave up hope. Watching the NFL Championship game from his home in Florida he talked with his son who lives near Baton Rouge immediately after the Saint victory. His son suggested that he write a song using the Mardi Gras Mambo theme. By noon the next day he had the tune written and recorded from his home recording studio. The song celebrated the Saint’s first ever appearance in the Super Bowl. Here is the sequel, celebrating the Super Bowl XLIV Champions, the New Orleans Saints.
