The thought occurred to me Sunday thinking back about everything we'd down this past weekend and extending back a year really. An organized bike ride Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Cinco de Mayo parties held al fresco at Nada and Bakersfield. Plus the Flying Pig, and not just the pig, but seemingly every weekend there are walks and runs downtown. And we 're not even talking about the packed events held almost every night at Fountain Square and Washington Park with Smale Park not far behind.
So Friday night and the Music ride, I learned to read sheet music for kazoo and to play one! I know its sounds silly and corny and it was as silly and corny as you can imagine. What I didn't expect was how hard they are to play for any amount of time.I have more respect for how athletic musicians must be. In the end I think most people gave up as we rode our bikes following the pedal wagon with a brass band playing and just enjoyed the music.
