In fact, if I know MMMB is performing, I will make my way downtown or to the Arboretum, or wherever I have to go just to see what they're up to, no matter if it's sweltering heat or raining pomeranians and poodles, I will get myself to see them...they just have that sort of appeal, the kind that makes you want to shrug off the blahs and get happy...and since I love every single one of them, I am always eager to see what they're planning to do next.
They need your help to pull it off, though, nearly $6,000 just for the charter bus, a place to stay in Austin, food, all the variables needed to take this band of 50 of the coolest people you will ever want to meet -- all volunteers - to Texas and back.
So why am I yammering on about them now? Well, the recent news is that MMMB has been invited to perform at the Honk! TX festival of community street bands in Austin, Texas, March 11 through 13th.

According to band leader Lori Houlihan, MMMB will perform at 8:45, 10:45 and 11:45 tomorrow night at the big fundraiser Honk! Honk! at Buster's Billiards & Backroom, along with a host of other members of our lovely artistic community (see details below).
"Help the band that loves Lexington share that love with our community band brethren from across the country -- and come back with more love for Lex!"
