Backstage Travels

All the world's a stage…

Play on, Nassau!

on January 26, 2013

Nassau, I will admit, is not my favourite of our ports. That isn’t to say that I’m not grateful to go to the Bahamas every week! But I do like Cozumel better for sun and fun. At least where we port.

There is one thing about Nassau, though, that I’m absolutely in love with.


Marching band music is a huge deal here. Look, it’s even on the money!!

As a former member of two high school marching bands, I am still quite in love with them and the music. It’s so unique. All music is…but marching band music is so close to my heart.

Look, the Drum Majors!


They closed off the whole street for them. Then they started to march away!101_2068


Yes, there are steel drums at every corner. But how many places do you know that have real concerts randomly in the middle of the street with school age kids? There was a little boy who looked about 6, rocking the snare. I tried to get a picture of him, but he was too quick!

Today was not a good beach day, so it was shopping, internet, and this band for me today.
