"Get a Life" Band to strut at Obama's big parade
Prepare yourselves for a shock as you watch the big inaugural parade in the nation’s capital on Tuesday, Jan. 20.
Hey, isn’t that? Could it be…?
Yes, it is!
It's The "Get a Life Marching Band"!
The local, fun-loving fixture at the Multnomah Day’s Parade and other strange events in “Weird City” has been invited to, well, join the parade. This is indeed "change we can believe in."
Patti Waitman-Ingebretsen, captain of the band’s famed, somewhat-high-stepping baton twirling unit, reports the band is pumped for the celebratory parade.
The band has performed mostly in parades in Oregon and southwest Washington. But it has also marched in San Antonio several times, inexplicably, and strutted its stuff at Disneyland and Disney World, and the Tampa Gasperilla Parade.
Next stop after the inauguration will be the San Francisco for Chinese New Years parade in Feb 2009.
