Mini Marching Bands - A Puzzle by Jeffrey Harris

There are two sets of clues in this crossword variation.  The Answers to the rows clues are to be entered
one right after the other in the appropriately numbered rows, in the order that have been clued.  The answers
to Bands clues are similarly to be entered one right after the other in the five lettered bands (indicated in
the grid by both the heavy gridlines and the shading.)

(Additional credit:  If I am not mistaken, the Marching Bands Puzzle concept is due to Mike Shenk.)
