HONK Fest West - Day 3

On the last day, each band played 10 minutes outside the Seattle Art Museum.  Beforehand, we posed for a group photo.
What a work of art!

Honk Fest West - Day 2

For the first time ever, HONK Fest combined forces with the Fremont Solstice Parade.  ARA marched along with the Hooty Hoops 2 miles in the hot sun and then played a short show in Gasworks Park.

Mel Swartz Memorial

Mel Swartz was one of the stalwarts of the Friday peace vigil in Olympia that Artesian Rumble has played weekly for years.  When he passed away at the age of 82, the Arkestra was invited to play his memorial service reception.  Since this was a celebration of his life, and there was a request for New Orleans tunes, our costume call was for "Dixieland Festive".
Westsiders take costume calls seriously

Roller Derby Halftime

The Oly Rollers skated against the London Rollergirls, and Artesian Rumble was there to play the British national anthem (funny, it sounds just like "My Country Tis of Thee") and the halftime entertainment.
Halftime rock out

God Save the Queen

Pay no attention to that shirt, we cheered for the home team, honest!
