Get a Life has fun even when it rains
Portland’s own Get a Life Marching Band is going to DC for Obama's inaugural parade! Every year, I watch these folks, who may be thirty or more years out from high school, march in the Multnomah Days Parade.
Founded in 1994 by Bob Pulido and John Lind, Get A Life is an all-adult band whose members have three things in common:
- They were all in high school or college marching bands.
- They still haven't gotten over it.
- They would rather miss a note than a meal!
Their motto is: Cogoito, Ergo Foodo.) I think, therefore I eat.
The presidential committee requested a song written in Oregon, so The Get A Life Marching Band will be playing “Louie, Louie.”
