Marlon Horton

A musician, small business owner and resident of New Orleans East.

Marlon Horton also known as “10th Ward Buck,” a Bounce Artist from New Orleans East, videotaped his harrowing experiences during and following Hurricane Katrina including the flooding of his home, helicopter rescue and heartbreaking evacuation to the Astrodome in Houston.

New Orleans East is particularly vulnerable to hurricanes, sandwiched on marshy ground between levees to the west and south, Lake Pontchartrain to the north and Lake Borne to the southeast.

With his entire community in ruins, he and thousands of others were forced to relocate.

Spending much of his time on the road commuting from Houston for gigs, Horton somehow manages to turn these tragic circumstances to his advantage and find his way back home.
