Bad to the Sousaphone
My apologies for a somewhat-lame play on the ‘Bad to the Bone’ phrase for the title…but you’ve got to admit that this sousaphone/tuba player looks like he should ditch the instrument and grab a Harley. Still, he didn’t sound that bad at all, and he was part of the Bloomingdale Cornet Band that marched in a firemen’s parade last October. This particular band is New Jersey’s oldest continuously-active marching/concert band (the band debuted in May of 1884).
