Last summer, on a hot July evening the Rainbow City Band took to the streets in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle to pratice our marching and playing. Being that it is rare to have a very warm evening here in Seattle, everyone had their windows open in hope of a cool breeze. Instead, to their surprise they heard a marching band. What happened next was unbelievable. People began coming out of their apartments and houses to listen, clap, dance and even to follow us block after block. Bringing this spontanious erruption of pure simple fun and joy to our community on a warm summer evening is what makes the Rainbow City Band such a wonderful organization. I never expected that playing "Stars and Stipes Forever" and "Thriller" on my flute after a 34 year hiatus, during band practice on the streets of Seattle, would be so fun!
