Strike up the Band

The city of Indianapolis has started their own brass band, INergy.
The band, a joint effort of the Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association and Indianapolis-based Bands of America, is scheduled to perform at events across the state to promote Indianapolis as a destination for tourists and conventions. They'll hit a number of small-town festivals.
I have mixed feelings about this. The commercialism is unsettling, especially as the band is meant to advertise Indianapolis attractions, yet it will disband at the end of the summer. But then again, it is a nice gig for college musicians. Their only danger is becoming very sick of "Back Home Again (in Indiana)" by August.
