Helen Money would be an ace addition to the lineup. You know, in case you hadn't thought of everything already.

BPB at 5am! If it's anything like the last time he played this thing, that is the must see time slot.

I am there.

One of my favorite memories of chicago so far is sitting at a table with a pitcher of beer at like 5pm on a weekday 5 feet in front of the Deal sisters while they played this event a few years ago.

Funny. I was sitting in front of Kim and put about $4 in quarters on her lyric sheet because the HVAC system kept blowing it off the stage.
I played a drum in Tijuana Hercules.

BTW I am trying to get a hold of someone at the Windy City Gay Chorus for a bit but have not heard back. I'd love to ask them to join us.

Also if anyone knows a couple marching band members with instruments...

That is my other dream...

Thanks! I'm a dummy! Another dumb question! What is the deadline for donations, if any? Can you donate after the event and before Christmas?

I was in a marching band and am getting my chops back up on the bari sax. I teach in Des Plaines the night of the 6th, but could get to 2nd City by 7. And I'll play with anybody.

Forum member rchapman75 is also a tromboner, if he's available.
Prime numbers and tonal clusters with Radiant Republic.

Bass in the Heavy Bombers We're on the PRF Singles Comp Q1.

Sax with Begin By Gathering Supplies.

Terrible News.

Shitload of them in Mucca Pazza. Is Mark Messing still involved with Redmoon Theatre? Shouldn't be hard to track them down.
