Walk to Defeat ALS

October 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Saturday 10/7/17. A couple of short standstills and then playing the walkers out on their route!

Muster 1 ITP: 8:20am Inman Park Marta Station to catch the 8:34 train (see notes below).
Muster 2: 9:00am near Georgia International Plaza
Step off 1: 9:15am to play in spots around the crowd.
Step off 2:  10:25am Just after Opening Ceremony.  We’ll lead the pack from the stage to the Walk Start then play a standstill while everyone begins.
Costume: Blue is the color of ALS… let’s spice things up blue, stripes and polka dots.
Broom: TBD
Incorrigibles: welcome

Parking: Available. Paid.
Marta: Take a blue or green line train to the Dome MARTA station.

Remember that ice bucket challenge bit?  Well, there will be no icy water dumped on you and your instrument! Buuuut, ALS is not cured yet and they still need money so these cool people (often family and friends of people with ALS) raise money and walk to defeat ALS.  Yes, it’s an early morning, but you’ll feel tons of warm fuzzies!  Still warming up to band? This morning gig is great to practice more normal costuming in a laid back environment.
