A look back at last season

In his "Test Driving Life" blog, automotive writer and bass player Steve Schaefer shared a lively post about attending a Hayward Municipal Band concert last season. A brief quote:
What could be better than a fine summer afternoon spent hearing live music in the park--for free? The Hayward (California) Municipal Band has been delivering the goods since 1957!
 Please be sure to check out the entire post here. And Steve, we hope to see you on the lawn again in 2013!
