On missing the marching bands



With so much to do this past weekend, we regret that we did not make it out to PJ’s Friday night for their “Spectacular Holiday Carnival" show, which celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Detroit Party Marching Band. Also appearing on the bill, which we missed, was the Lowdown Brass Band and the Gabriel Brass Band. 

It's not too late, of course to wish the marching band a happy fifth birthday — and best wishes for another five!

The flyer said that the door was $7 with costume, and $10 without. Did you attend, and if so what, did you dress up like an elf, or as a Christmas tree, something like that? We want to know — comments section, please!
