I don't know if my ska band is mighty enough to be included in this thread, but here are two pics from our gig Sunday night.

This is all eleven (!) of us pre-show in the green room:

There may be more photos and videos forthcoming. I don't yet know what all my friends in the audience captured.

Nice
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Very cool. Next time I visit your fair city I hope it coincides with one of your shows.

Oh and what was your band's name again?

How in the world do you coordinate this many people? I can't even get a band of four to show up for rehearsal.

Right.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

It ain't easy, mate.

The three women sing (and one plays flute) on just three songs, so if they can't rehearse, it's okay because they know their parts well.

And if they can't make it to a show, we can get by without them on two of the songs, but we have to drop "Free Nelson Mandela" because we need their harmonies.

But that still leaves eight of us messed up, clueless guys, and it's tough to work out schedules.

We play next month on Saturday the 14th.

We are still called "One Step Behind" even though there is a U.K. Madness cover band with that same name.

We'll get around to changing our name soon ...

This isn't England.

Also probably wouldn't be until summer or so before I could make it out there.

One more photo has emerged online from a Facebook friend, a very good photographer, and I present it here:
