A little bit about the marching band you're seeing in the immediately preceeding pics: They performed with less than one hour's rehearsal on the day of the event, and pulled off their mission with spectacular aplomb. The members are Nate Scheible (my bandmate in Self Destruct Button) on bass drum, John Polomsky (Stimulus Package) on snare, Lou Arocho (late of The X-Bolex) on sax, and Chuck Cieslik and Mike Ocampo on sax and trumpet, respectively, both of whom regular readers of this indulgence know from my own L.L. band, and believe you me, I couldn't be prouder. Here are some audio snippets (of not at all copyrighted songs I'm posting without permission, no siree) from their rehearsal on Saturday afternoon.
