Chicago Renegade: Marching Bands

These two marching bands: Mucca Pazza and the Magic Circus Band were huge hits at Chicago Renegade.  They call themselves a "Circus Punk Marching Band" and I think that is a pretty accurate description.

Here are a couple of videos that B took of their performances.  They would play and march down one side of the street and then back--there was always a huge crowd following them and it was really such a unique performance to watch--their enthusiasm was contagious!

Check out the guys wearing loudspeakers on their heads and playing electric guitars:

And the vintage Mizzou Marching Band outfit on one of the guys in the front:
