The Feed & Seed Marching Abominables"sounds just like the "Ophir Prison
Marching Band" in our area. A more class-less, rude, loud, and fun bunch of
guys you'll never find. They play an eclectic mix of New Orleans Jazz,
Swing, Hard Rock, Sousa, and you name it! The "leader-perfesser" keeps the
crowd in stitches continuously.They'll be the first group in a parade, dash
back to come through halfway , and then be the tail-end of the parade and
play a two hour stand-up concert on the spot to several hundred adoring
Just recently they've been part of the Sacramento Jubilee to everyone's joy!
What a great thread this is!
