Here is EE, in part, on Michigan Avenue (Magnificent Mile), with the full "Lotto Gnome" rig, Jane, Ken, Kevin and Mike. A funny moment happened when someone from a high rise poured a bucket of water on me. Good thing it was near 95 degrees.
Jane on cornet, Kenny on drum.
Kazoo and Bone.
Hey, welcome to our city, please support the gnomes and buy a kazoo!
Save the gnomes! Buy an EE lottery ticket.
Hey, wait, don't just walk by people drumming, tromboning, a girl in a thatched bikini, and a guy in a bird suit.
Hey, give us a buck.
Actually, we don't need money to have a good time.

Just keep jammin.

special thanks to Brenna Marie McLaughlin for these photos.
