I was with the Winona Calliope Band in two Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans in February, 2009. The band accompanies a 1939 circus-wagon steam calliope that makes the trip each year from Winona, Minn. This was one of the numbers we played in the Endymion Parade, which wound through the city for five hours on Saturday night of Mardi Gras weekend. The automatic gain control on my little digital recorder adjusted itself to the rather earsplitting volume of the calliope, so the balance isn't too good. I was playing my trusty -- and loud -- Silver Bell plectrum.
