A very spirited Dutch street band I saw in Holland a couple of times around 
1996 was the Consolidated Swab Orchestra. I think the band included some 
medical students and might have been based out of Bergen op Zoom in the 
south of the country. I have one of their CDs but which is not to hand at 
the moment to give any numbers. The Tarentella (sp?) was one of their most 
cheered numbers. They had an excellent trumpet man [Michael Verkamp ?] who a 
year or so later joined the DSCB altho' I think his stay was short.  A quick 
look on the web gained no hits to a website, so could be they are now
