In Atlanta we have The Seed & Feed Marching Abominables. This group has been 
around about 15-20 years, must have 50 or more members and are hired all the 
time to stir up some excitement. They usually are present at every major 
parade and can often be found marching through a ballroom of executives at a 
convention to make sure everyone is 'awake'. I believe the group is made up 
of volunteers (doctors, lawyers, artists, writers, stock brokers, whatever) 
and each person seems to be in charge of their own costume (which are often 
elaborate and always hilarious). The arrangements run from Sousa to concert 
band versions of pop and rock and are always just a little off on purpose. We 
always look forward to seeing and hearing the Abominables!
