Hey Everybody, Reading the posts on Taps at the Indy 500 got me thinking about all the players on here that either do taps or perform in some other way for Memorial Day. There's gotta be a ton of funny/sad/touching stories out there. Anyone care to share them? I play in a community band up here in New Hampshire. We did a gig at a small town nearby and played quite a few Patriotic songs and Sousa (is that redundant?). The wind was gusting up to 30mph and sheet music was flying all over the place (even with clips/plexiglas)! The guy beside me had his stand blow over before we started and it knocked his Strad over onto the asphalt (ouch!). Other than the wind, great ceremony.
