    I play in a small community band pretty easy tunes but fun people, a fun big band reh. twice a month with 3-4 concerts a year also fun group, british style brass band fun group but don't care to prep for contest probably 6-7 concerts a year and praise band at church. in all the groups I enjoy the people and most of the time the music, being retired it is also a social time.

    I'm late to replying to this thread.

    I REALLY enjoy playing what the charts we play.

    The swing band does note for note transcriptions of the original chats and a few the the actual original charts.

    I do the note for note solos of Berigan, Ziggy, Harry James, etc.

    The band is busy and I wouldn't trade it!

    That's good to hear, Chuck. I notice that when a band plays the popular music of the genre it historically played, I enjoy it a lot more. Imagine if your swing band decided to transcribe some modern rap charts to incorporate into your next dance gig...

    Spicing up the performance of the Traditional Standard with original songs written by the band members. When so doing, suddenly those standards provide contrast to the modern, and roots and transition/evolution can be appreciated.
