I'm playing a bit of catch-up here, since I hadn't taken the time to read the whole thread previously.

I was "Den Chief" for a Cub Scout Den run by Patti Paige's sister. (And saw Patti perform live in NYC the evening before "my" band performed at the Brooklyn Art Museum.)

I have played Igor Stravinsky's Circus Polka in at least a dozen public performances. (The elephants didn't like it, and neither did I. Our Concert Band may be the only group ever to play it after the original disastrous introduction by Ringling Bros.)
