You're life is one long Doo-Dah parade. How come y'all haven't marched in that one yet?

Karin, the Doo Dah would probably be great for us. But we need help when we travel. Usually the organizers give us some money to defray travel costs and most band members are billeted.

HONK! in Boston and Seattle are highly organized. There is always plenty of food provided as well.

But spread the word, you never know when we might come to your town :-)

If you go to the Carnival Band blog you'll see a couple of recent videos, one features CB. And at the very end there is a mercifully short shot of me.

Looking good in your white tails and new hat there, Wayne. Your shots capture all the fun of the music and the dancing the street. All that high energy wrapped up into one big weekend festival. . .looks like a blast!

You saw that pic did you Kim.

There is a very good reason some of us stay on the other side of the camera :-)
