The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players

The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players buy old slide shows at yard and estate sales and then play music to them. After catching them on a rerun of Conan O'Brien, my appetite was whet for their appearance at GEL last week. Among other things, they sang a six-part rock opera about a 1977 McDonald's corporate meeting. Half the audience was laughing hysterically while the other half was very, very perplexed as to what was happening (one gentleman looked almost angry that his time was being wasted in this manner). For the unperplexable among you, I recommend checking out one of their shows.
