9th Ward Marching Band Goes On Record
For recent performances of the Music Box Shantytown Symphony, Mr. Quintron traded his Drum Buddy for giant foam panels. If the inventor-musician seemed like a natural, it's because the move was hardly unprecedented. During Mardi Gras Quintron can often be found directing musicians on the streets as the drum major of the 9th Ward Marching Band. Now, the band's Carnival Caterwauls are available all year round, on record.
