Sunday Jan 14th and 21st 3pm
And Every Sunday Afternoon thereafter
River St Parking Garage, Santa Cruz
(top story in good weather, 2nd story in inclement weather)
Bring gloves and warm clothes and your trash instruments. After a little warm up, we'll be marching to the plaza in front of O'Neil's for a more public performance. So if you're late, that's where we'll be. Though try to be there on time.
We are a marching percussion band – a bone-shaking
recycled orchestra – a superhero sonic force of
resistance to be reckoned with, and we need you!
We make percussion on tuned cans, hubcaps and barrels,
drums, pieces of sheet metal, and homemade oddities.
If you are full of rebellious insolence and music in your
heart, we need you to be part of the band. Bring your
courage, your passion, your righteous anger. Bring your
instruments, recycled or otherwise.
Directions: River street garage is next to Wells Fargo. We're on the 3rd or 2nd story, rain or shine. Not only will we be using an underutilized space, but we will be challenging the city's Draconian 15-min parking lot panic law. A good practice location for a band of rebellious revolutionary noise makers.
We'll be working on more whistleblowing (or silent) leadership skills, starting rhythms, marching formation, things to talk about at the performance, recruiting, and getting an audience involved. No previous musicianship necessary, though if you regularly find yourself tapping out rhythms to good music, you'll dig this.
