The Sebastopol Community Band rolled out of bed early today and played a short  7:25 am surprise concert for the outgoing president of the Sebastopol Rotary Sunrise. Although it was waaay to early to be playing Sousa, we produced passable renditions of the Liberty Bell, Semper Fidelis, and a variety of other old favorites. We probably won’t do more early morning concerts any time soon, but it’s great to be in demand.
