That's why we don't have a permanent Clarinet player in St. Gabriel's 
Celestial Brass Band,  we got White Pants,, Golf Shirts, and do 
marching shows too, now we don't wear Red vest or Boaters or straw 
hats,  but we do wear Purple Aussie Hats that some think look a bit 
GAY, and Red Greek Fisherman's hats,  all topped of with white sneakers 
and sometimes White Long Tailed Tuxedo coats.

But then again we are a bit different  aint' we boys,??

The music sounds good befoer we even play just lookin' at all them 
handsome old devils all dressed up to play the high school prom,  ahhhh 
but all the pretty little girls in the audience of all ages adore us.

   I took it seriously :)
About 80% anyway.
A player with that attitude would have been
welcome in my band anytime.
