I know there are a lot of drum and bugle corps out there and very good ones too. But Monday , on Craigs list and on FB there appeared this ad for 75 marching band players from 6am to 12 noon on Friday. Uniforms furnished, music furnished, Bkfst and Lunch furnished for a corporate gig. $175 plus parking.
So, since I wasn’t doing anything else, I signed up. Many emails went out from the hiring guy who has a deal called the Patriot Brass, and they contract out bands for mostly veteran events. But this was a corporate deal. So…….off I went at Oh Dark Thirty to ATL.
78 of my closest musician friends and I all gathered in a classroom, were issued uniforms complete with hat and shako, and rehearsed, and at 11:15am or so, marched into this big room and played 2 tunes and marched out to a cadence. What fun!! Click on the links at the end for the video!!
