Join Us

Welcome to Seed & Feed Marching Abominable!

The S&FMA is always welcoming musicians and dancers for all sections of the band.  There are no auditions, and no marching experience is required.  We have musicians from 16 to 85, from beginners to professionals, and from all walks of life! Most of the musicians in the band had not played their instruments for many years when they joined the band, so don’t feel like it’s been too long to get started again.  It is probably a good idea that you know how to read music (don’t worry…you’ll be surprised at how fast it comes back to you).  You do not need any previous marching experience; we wander more than we march!

The Band is in season between Labor Day and Memorial Day each year. We practice on Tuesday evenings at 8pm at the Little Five Points Community Center.

Our first rehearsal of the 2017-2018 Season will take place on August 29th at 8 pm. Please join us!

Join the Band

If you would like more information about how to join Seed & Feed or what to expect, please fill out the form below and our friendly neighborhood Rostermeister (Membership Coordinator) will get back to you soon. We can’t wait to see you at the band room!








Directions to Tuesday night rehearsals

Little Five Points Community Center is on the corner of Euclid and Austin Avenues.

From 75/85, exit Freedom Parkway.  Follow Freedom Parkway (bear right at both forks in the road) until it dead ends into Moreland.  Take a right onto Moreland and go to the third traffic light.  Turn right at this light onto Euclid.  Just past the second light on Euclid, turn left into the Community Center parking lot.

We practice in the front room.  Please don’t park on the grass.  There is additional parking along the right side of the building.
For more information, email rostermeister@seedandfeed.org.

    Hey there! I came to last rehearsal last week (Trumpet Player). Wasn’t able to get copies of music (something about copy machine malfunction). Just wondering if/where I might be able to get copies of music to work on during summer?? Also like to get on mailing list to keep up.

    Thanks Much,

    Tim

    Hi, I am interested in joining, but I am marching in my high school band until mid November. I play the alto saxophone.

    Is there any I could join later?

    Is it also a problem that I am only fourteen?

    Hi Annie,

    Do you have a slot for a flute player? I was first chair as well as the only flute player in my high school band. I would love to join you in September.

    Hi, I’d like to join the community band if possible, I don’t know exactly how to join though. I play the tenor saxophone semi-professionally, and I can also play the clarinet adequately. I’m a college music major. If this was the wrong place to ask about joining, then sorry about that. If not, thanks for any input.

    My partner, Scott Meeker, and I are interested in joining the band. I am a trumpet player and he is interested in either playing cymbals/drum/tambourine/dancing. (He doesnt read music but has a lot of enthusiasm!) Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Maybe this is appropriate here … I’m looking for a sax player (alto/tenor) for an established Bowie tribute band. If anyone is interested, have them contact me?

    Thanks,

    Musically Yours,
    Fiki

    I stumled across your site while reading about DragonCon. I marched briefly with the band in the late 80s back when the uniform was a white overall. I painted the word “Thumper” on my leg.
    My “audition” was meeting the band during a meet up for a march and told to strap on a snare drum and start playing. What a way to join a band! All the music then was Sousa marches and plenty of spirit. I was only in it for a short time but it was one of my more pleasant memories of Atlanta. Now I live in Virginia and I would gladly play with the band again if I could. Just wanted to share a memory from long ago.

    Hi Donna,

    My son is 17 and interested in joining your band. Would he still need to have a parent accompany him to practices and performances? I absolutely love you guys and would be happy to dance along in a fabulous costume, although I do not play an instrument. Maybe I could learn the tamborine…

    Thinking about rejoining. (member for ABOUT 15YRS., LEAvING 2YRS AGO OR THERe ABOUTs). I could do the 7/7 gig since I am retired. If interested could somebody forward last years play list or at least a list for the 7/7 gig to make sure I have the parts. (I hAVE A GOOD COLLECTION!) Will be out of town 6/24 for the week.

    Let me know about 7/7 one way or the other. (ps; really hate the cap lock button.)
