You may remember Matt Buck as the sousaphone player who trolled members of Ku Klux Klan during their July rally at the South Carolina statehouse. His bumbling, fart like version of Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” attracted the attention of Time, The New York Daily News, The Daily Mail (UK), and The Huffington Post labeled Buck as an "American Hero." On Saturday, Buck joined up with fellow Music Farm engineer John Albrecht to participate in the annual Mardi Gras parade through the streets of the Rosewood neighborhood. At the parade's conclusion, the duo packed up their gear and headed over to the Farm for an early load in. Turns out, they were just warming up for their night with Project Pat.
