Bass Drum and Tuba

I took this photo backstage at the Lusher Crawfish Boil (my kids' school's big fundraiser festival), shortly before performing with the Lusher Dad's Band (which primarily consists of a bunch of middle-aged men with electric guitars — bless our hearts). This year's Boil was preceded by lots of rain, turning the whole thing into a giant mud-fest — sort of like Woodstock with kids and shellfish. Eventually volunteers covered most of the dance area in front of the stage with hay, which mitigated the bogginess but caused some confusion when a band named Pony Space performed: paddock-sized area covered in hay + placard sign reading "Pony Space" = lots of folks looking around wondering, "Where the hell's the ponies?"
