The Doo Dah Queen has been Chosen!

Doo Dah Queen Meg is crowned

The Queen has been picked for the 39th Occasional Doo Dah Parade. Hail, Queen Meg! Meg tried out and won after her 3rd nomination. Queen Meg has always been in the Doo Dah lair and I think always will be. Her act for the audience was somewhat lackluster, but when another contestant, number 66, needed someone to sing Route 66, Meg stepped up to help her fellow contestant with a perfect rendition, and it is not an easy song to sing. Her selfless act set her apart, and was both brilliant and charming.

Theramin player, Kelly X, brought the aliens in from outer space with her musical gadget. She is in a band called Rocket to Uranus. Contestant Bane came as a robot toy, and shouted, “Vote for Trump and I’ll blow this place up!” Regular nominee, Pee Pee Poo Poo came as Hillary Clinton. The Devil boy tried to bribe me. His number was 666. We had one Black Lives Matter protestor contestant and a mermaid who sang, “It is Wet Down There” over and over again. Doctor Demento handled the contestants, and Aleksi and I handled the accordion and vocal duties. Horses on Astro Turf played, as we were all reeling from the sudden death of Snotty Scotty, long time Doo Dah Band supporter and friend. He will be sorely missed.

The Parade is November 20th at 11am. You can be part of the parade for 10 bucks each, with your organization.
