Members of the Ideal Maine Social Aid & Sanctuary Band met with Tamara to tell the original story of the band, their personal stories with it and how others can be part of the band! (whether as participant or enjoyer) Band organizer Jeremy Fink and members Janine Platt and Marissa Fink (no relation!) talk about how they came to join the band and some of their favorite experiences with the Portland Maine based second-line style activist band.
