Tax Day used to be a party at the post office

But there was once a time that hordes of last-minute filers descended upon the post office on this day, rushing to get their paper forms in before the deadline.

"I think we all can, at the bottom our hearts, feel a little in line with what they're going through, in the last second, having to turn those things in," said Cameron Danesh, who plays alto sax and is head of the band.
