Uh, I didn't. Had the same July 4 gig for the last eight years . . . last
group on the bandstand prior to the power going off. Nothing quite like
trying to pack your horn outdoors in pitch darkness with shells booming
overhead. Sousa, Sousa, Sousa, with a bit of Bilik and John WIlliams thrown
in. Blast-O-Rama >>

Oh I like that! I did one last year that comes close. We rushed the whole
program trying to beat the clouds rolling in, but along with the fireworks
and shotgun in the 1812, we also had thunder, lightening, and a torrential
downpour. While it was damp around the edges (we were under a tent and I was
in the middle, so hey, I was dry) it was fun in a sick kind of way. Some
diehards crowded around the edges of the tent and shouted for us to play more
when we finished (going back to the beer and 4th discussion). We didn't. I
do, however, keep an entire second kit to play ANY outdoor job.
