Real, Uniformed, Marching band on the Playa

Potential members - you have found the Burning Band.

The very first marching band at BRC, and a playa institution for over a dozen years, we perform numerous feel-good, sing-along tunes such as "Walk Right In," "It's a Long Way to Tipperary," "Yes, We Have No Bananas, " "In Heaven There Is No Beer," and cheerfully improvise on reasonable requests. We live all over the playa, although many of us are camped for 2010 within Snowflake Village.

We comprise a couple dozen or so musicians of various stripes - legitimate wind instruments, arcane percussion, other folks who haven't played since high school and just want to raise hell. Our dashing, gold-fringed designer uniforms are to swoon for. Whatever we lack in musicality we recover in spiffitude. We add class to playa parties, weddings, funerals, parades, and wake-up calls; and sometimes we just wander off as a group, looking for bars or whatever. Burning Band members can do all our gigs, or as many as you'd like.

If all this speaks to you, we'd be pleased to hear from you - and welcome you to the original, only-on-the-playa, Burning Band.
