    Anyone know who is in the band (trumpet specifically)?

    If they are on here, just wanted to let you know my wife and I watched the show last night. You guys (and gals?) sounded terriffic!! Made me want to go practice! Keep it up.

    BTW, how do you land a gig like that?

    Peace,
    Tim

    If you have a DVR, wait for the credits to roll and then slow it down and squint reallyhard (because it gets so small when they squish it over to the side) and you should see the band members in there somewhere.

    As for landing the gig? I suspect you just gotta know the right people.

    No DVR and I saw the fine print but couldn't read it quick enough, hence me asking. Guess I could try to find it online... CBS, I think it was... not sure now, lol.

    Bear,

    It is an ABC show, I agree they are a great band, who wouldn't want to play in a group like that.

    As an aside, I think the 'tightest' group I have ever heard is the band with Delbert McClinton several years ago. I heard trumpets all over the place and never a blurp or a note out of tune. :play:

    I typically don't watch that show, but my wife tuned in last night and I thought the trumpet player was off the hook! Rick Baptist maybe?

    I'm alomst sure that Rick Baptiste is the lead player, but I don't know who else is in the section.

    The latest ITG journal had an article on Chris Tedesco. He discussed playing in the band once. If I recall he stated that Harry Kim is the lead player and then there is a rotation to fill out the section.

    In any case, those guys (and gals, if there were any) did a terrific job when I watched.
