Fighting Instruments of Karma

Visit Website

When The New Old Time Chautauqua began in 1981 to take the Country Fair shows on tour around the Pacific Northwest, the Fighting Instruments of Karma went along as both marching and stage band. The Band began in 1975 with "The Chumleighland March" by Carl Spaethe, expanded shortly thereafter into "The New Chumleighland March" by his alter ego Thaddeus Spae, which continues to be our theme march. FIKMCB/O play Sousa marches, other classic 19th and early 20th century marches, a version of "Teddy Bears' Picnic", Cumbias, Beatles tunes, a Bollywood Wedding March, a Mexican waltz, and has marched on Chautauqua from Washington to Alaska!
