RBBBC Red Unit Circus Band 2001

The above photo was taken back in 2001 when Pammy and I last toured with the circus. All the clowns would stand around front and back track as the band members were introduced while "mimed" playing their particular instrument. There were a lot of band members to "mime" and it got repetitive for us. We thought about what we could that was more fun and creative. The we got the notion of making an over-sized  band member program and as each member was introduced we'd walk up to them look at the program, listen to their riff and rate them. It was all in fun and I think the band enjoyed it too. That's Ken Husky on bass. I'll have to dig it out but we still have that program prop.
