 playing in the rain
Author: Philip Caron

I sat in with a small band playing marches and old-time favorites yesterday. We rode a band wagon - Hill's Band Wagon - through a drenching rain for the Bellows Falls, Vt. Alumni Day parade. It was great. Most of the music was sight reading for me but I could handle it, marches by R. B. Hall and E. E. Bagley etc. and swing tune arrangements, all from multiple generations ago. The musicians got soaked through, but the folks lining the street were all smiles and vocal appreciation. Some danced in the rain to the swing pieces as we passed, including younger people, which was nice to note.

Temperatures were not cold: except for the rain it was comfortable short-sleeve weather. I play my wooden R13 outdoors in those temperatures every summer with my regular band, so I used it in the parade. I figured water alone wouldn't damage the wood, though I wasn't sure about the pad glue. It dried off ok after the parade and seems fine - I used it at a rehearsal of my regular band in the evening.
